SDG7 “Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all”
Closely connected to the last SDG we discussed, here we are with the new topic: SDG7 “Affordable and clean energy”
💡 Energy is the fuel of the world but are we using it in the best way? Shall we improve?
There is always room for improvement!!!
The lack of access to energy hinders economic and human development. This is the main reason why we need to improve energy usage and give more space to renewables. Nowadays, renewables are cheaper and reliable. Just to give an example, 80 minutes of sunlight can power Earth for one year!*
📋 What can we do in our small way?
- Switch off your appliances at the socket
- Buy rechargeable electronics
- Use solar energy sources
- Don’t use multiple devices at the same time
Last but not least: Stay informed! 📢
SDG6 “Clean water and sanitation for all”
One more…Sustainable Development Goal!
🔜 Here we are with the recap related to SDG6 “Clean water and sanitation”.
Population growth, urbanization and increasing water needs make water’s demand exponentially increase. If we look at this phenomenon globally, billions of people will lack access to this basic service in 2030 unless progress quadruples.
🚰 Access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene are some of the most important goals fixed in the Agenda 2030. How to ensure these basic needs?
- Reducing pollution, Increasing recycling and safe reuse globally
- Eliminating dumping and minimizing release of hazardous chemicals and materials
- Halving the proportion of untreated wastewater
💪🏽 “Act locally, impact globally”…as we always say “people can have a huge impact even with small actions” 💪🏽
SDG1 “End poverty in all its forms everywhere” & SDG10 “Reduce inequality within and among countries”
🧐 Let’s discover 2 over 17 SDGs 🧐
Here we are:
- SDG1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere
- SDG10: reduce inequality within and among countries
🔴 Why are they strictly connected? 🔴
Poverty could be considered an inequality and together with others can threaten long- term social and economic development, harm poverty reduction and destroy people’s sense of fulfillment and self-worth. This, in turn, can breed crime, disease and environmental degradation.
💬 Some numbers…
- People who make less than $1.90 are considered to be in “extreme poverty
- South Sudan has the highest poverty rates (82.30%) (in 2022)
- Iceland stands at the top of countries with the lowest poverty rates with a poverty rate of 4.9%
- 281 Million international migrants (135 million women/146 million men)
- Mainly from five countries: Syrian Arab Republic (6.8 million), Venezuela (5.6 million), Ukraine (5.4 million), Afghanistan (2.8 million) South Sudan (2.4 million)
💬 Take notes: 17 October”International Day for the Eradication of Poverty” – 18 December “International Migrants Day” – 20 December “International Human Solidarity Day”
