Ignite your passion for doing good

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal set of 17 goals created by the United Nations. These goals act as an urgent call to action for countries to help end global poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all by the end of 2030. Each of our five WE Villages Pillars of Impact tie in to at least one SDG, which means that when you take action for any of our service-learning campaigns or fundraising initiatives you are joining the rest of the world in working toward a sustainable future.

The 12th Sustainable Development Goal is responsible consumption and production, a relevant and critical issue today. That’s why we’re providing you with a free resource to learn about the plastic waste problem, with strategies and activities to reduce your, and your community’s, plastic use!
