046: How can the 17 Sustainable Development Goals create a more sustainable future for you and Mama Earth with Mariska Nell


In this episode, I am looking back at some goals that were set for Mama Earth and that is the Sustainable Development Goals we will also be looking at great organizations like the Goalkeepers that are bringing leaders from all around the world to accelerate progress toward ending poverty and fighting inequality. 

Key Take Away

“The 17 sustainable development goals will help to end extreme poverty and build a better world by 2030. “


On the 25 of September 2015, 193 world leader adopted new global goals at the UN’s annual General Assembly. These 17 goals would each help to build a better future. Just like when we set our own goals whether for a year, a month or a specific project, it is important for us to set goals to end poverty, hunger, equality as well as all things related to Mama Earth to name a few. Without these goals, it becomes harder to measure our progress and also easier for us to not make any improvements if there are no goals to hold us accountable.

I started the Mama Earth Talk podcast in 2018 to share some of the things that I learned about just how easy it can be to reduce your impact on the environment.
