We’re Smart® World Ambassador for Sustainable Development
In September 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs were formally adopted by the UN General Assembly with Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. Over the next 15 years, the 17 goals should form a plan of action to lift humanity out of poverty and put the planet back on a sustainable path. These goals, which are one and indivisible, reflect the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental. This video gives a quick tour of the goals.

The Belgian government has named We're Smart® World as one of the 2021 Voices for these goals. The jury of the SDG Voices acknowledged the (international) achievements of We’re Smart® World and its contribution to sustainable development. We’re Smart® sees it as an honour to hold this title of Belgian SDG Voice.
