Goals for girls post-2015: Win, lose or draw?

Photographic exhibition

The Sustainable Development Goals are an ambitious, universal framework which address the three dimensions of sustainable development – social, environmental and economic – in an integrated way.

They request the world to take the “bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path...” and to leave no one behind.

Each photograph in the exhibition represents the importance of girls’ equal participation in the context of each of the 17 SDGs.
