Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield Highlights U.S. Contributions to Advance the Sustainable Development Goals with New Display at the U.S. Mission to the UN
Ambassador Linda Thomas- Greenfield, U.S. Representative to the United Nations, is gearing up for the 2023 SDG Summit with a visual display in the lobby of the U.S. Mission to the United Nations spotlighting U.S. initiatives that advance the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
“At the end of the day, this simply boils down to upholding the inherent dignity of every human being,” said Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield. “The United States supports the 2030 Agenda because the SDGs are, at their heart, about expanding economic opportunity, narrowing the disparity, caring for our planet, good governance, and ensuring no one is left behind. That is the American mission at its core.”
The Sustainable Development Goals are a universal call to action, galvanizing action towards poverty eradication, quality education, gender equality, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, decent work, industry innovation, reduced inequalities, sustainable cities, responsible consumption, climate action, life below water, life on land, peace and justice, and partnerships for achieving these goals.
To learn about some of the work the United States is doing to advance the goals, come view the display on 1st Avenue, between 44th and 45th Street in New York City.
