Why the SDGs?

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have been designed in order to better the lives of all of humanity, rendering all equal by tackling vulnerable issues and reassuring that people have access to their needs. It has given the world one single vision for a future where no one is left behind. The 17 different goals, which need to be reached by 2030, offer the most practical and effective pathway by which we address the causes of abuse of human rights, lack of basic human needs, conflict and environmental degradation.

This movement is being lead and promoted by the United Nations, together with its supporters, including JCI and therefore, JCI Malta. To this effect, this photography competition aims to encourage photographers to see through the lenses’ eye the sustainable development, express it through a photo and share it with the world.
