Abstract: The Sustainable Development Goals have been called the most ambitious goals in history. Perhaps rightly so, given the magnitude of what they set out to accomplish. However, with the tangible commitment of 192 countries behind them, achieving the goals by 2030 is now a firm obligation across the globe. The time is ripe to ensure that every human being lives in a world where their fundamental human rights are observed, and respected. To do otherwise would be to allow the deleterious effects of social injustice to fester, obstructing the way towards a world that is sustainable, inclusive, and mindful of the dignity and wellbeing of each and every person. In making the goals a reality, it is important to nurture a strong sense of solidarity and togetherness. The goals are for everybody, and no person can be left behind. The President’s Foundation for the Wellbeing of Society works to keep the Sustainable Development Goals at the heart of all that it does. Achieving the Global Goals goes hand in hand with ensuring meaningful wellbeing, so that each person may flourish within a world that offers dignity to all. The Foundation works to create safe spaces to listen, explore, discuss, learn about and research ways of enhancing human relationships to become forces for meeting human needs, while providing opportunities for each and every individual to develop to their full potential, within a society that is inclusive and supportive. These aims have driven the Foundation to kickstart a public discussion on the Sustainable Development Goals, through the efforts and initiative of its National Observatory for Living with Dignity. This publication provides just a glimpse into what has been shared thus far. In order for the ambitious targets to be reached, the discussion put across in these pages needs to go much further.
