- Humanity took more than 200,000 years to reach the mark of 1 billion people and only 200 years to reach 7 billion on the planet. Soon, we will be 9 billion inhabitants, with more than half living in cities, the vast majority connected to the internet and absolutely all, pressured by the temperature of the planet Earth that, since the beginning of the 21st century, set records year after year.
According to the United Nations, these will be the great challenges of our time. That is why leaders around the world are reinforcing the urgent need to invest more energy, attention and resources to individuals, groups and organizations that think, discuss and work to solve the most complex problems in society.
- Understanding the unpredictable consequences of this growth and the impact of these changes for the preservation of our species and nature in 1992 at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development – Earth Summit – in Rio de Janeiro, the world has identifed a new Path to human well- being, sustainable development.
The concept of sustainable development recognizes that economic development must be the balance between growth that meets the needs of people and that protects the environment simultaneously. Years later, to translate this concept into action, the UN launched the Millennium Development Goals, which between 2000 and 2015 produced the most successful anti-poverty movement in history.
As the world’s population continues to grow and the planet hits record temperatures, threatening our primary resources like land and water, civilization continues to accelerate its urbanization process, while the speed of the digital revolution alerts governments, corporations and organizations around the world for their efects and impacts on the economy and society.
We are determined to build a global community to mobilize partnerships and the means to think, discuss and share knowledge and practices that will ensure the implementation of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals based on a reinforced spirit of global solidarity and with the participation of companies, organizations Social and professional associations of all countries and all sectors concerned.
