Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The 17 Goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve them all by 2030. 

Beyond Skin are embedding the goals into our activities and delivering specific SDG workshops (online and offline). Two of our lead SDGs experts are Deepti Singh and Joe Conere (biogs below). Please email us if you would like to have a workshop for your group
