If so, then perhaps you could focus on taking action to help improve health and wellbeing, and help take steps towards achieving UN Sustainable Development Goals 2 (Hunger and Nutrition), 3 (Good Health), and 6 (Clean Water & Sanitation). Some ideas include:

  • Create an awareness campaign aimed at improving nutrition ¬†and an understanding of issues with food security
  • Encourage healthy eating and exercise to fight obesity
  • Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation
  • Promote healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages

What other ‘global goals’ could you get involved in addressing?
