June 2018 | The 1,000 Day Challenge

This issue is all about scoring goals. Not goals at the World Cup, but the most important goals of our time – the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. June 23rd marks 1,000 days since the 17 global goals were agreed upon by 193 nations. This issue takes stock and draws conclusions on the current state of the SDGs. We have digested over 70 reports and 47 Voluntary National reviews and provide you with a global overview of what the governments and politicians have been or have not been doing over the last 1,000 days. The result is depressing: The 17 goals are not on track to be met. The question is then, what and who should be the real game changers?
