RMG - A Salesian Response to 2030 Agenda!
By ANS
Mumbai, Sep. 29. (ANS - Rome) - On the first anniversary of the acceptance by the United Nations of the Sustainable Development Agenda till 2030, Don Bosco Network is launching A Salesian Response to the 2030 Agenda, emphasizing the commitment of Don Bosco organizations to the advancement of "poor and abandoned youth".
View actual size
The Sustainable Development Goals were signed exactly a year ago and represent a challenge for the next 15 years. Unlike the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which were destined for developing countries, particularly the poorest, these apply to all countries, rich and poor.

There are 17 Objectives that, with the accompanying 169 goals, constitute an agenda of progress and social transformation that will be achieved only if all stakeholders (governments, civil society, religious and private organizations) come together and work together

As Salesians we welcome the agenda and present our recommendations for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals, making sure that no one is left behind and that all the rights of young people, especially the Right to Education (SDG 4), are respected by all the Stakeholders.

The document granted by the Don Bosco Network points out: "we believe that education is the key to eradicating poverty in all its forms, everywhere. It is essential in order to promote and ensure the common good. As Salesians we are dedicated to the social inclusion of all people and we work consistently to remove the structural barriers that prevent this."

The Salesians of Don Bosco, therefore, plan to encourage all stakeholders to commit to fully implementing this ambitious programme.

This response has been approved by the SDB General Council and will be presented in the coming months by Don Bosco organizations to international institutions (UN, EU) and the governments of their respective countries.
