Almost half the world - over three billion people - live on less than $2.50 a day. There are 20.9 million victims of human trafficking worldwide. Glaciers are retreating almost everywhere around the world - including in the Alps, Himalayas, Andes, Rockies, Alaska, and Africa. It seems like the world is facing some of the biggest problems it has ever seen, none of which can be solved by the actions of one person or nation alone.
The Solution Offered by UN Foundation
The UN Foundation exists to solve some of the world’s biggest problems by promoting collaboration between nations. This year, they are tackling some of the most important modern issues, including the eradication of poverty and hunger, the promotion of gender equality, and the creation of sustainable climate action. These are just a few of the Global Goals that the UN Foundation supports. The list may be ambitious, but with the collaboration of many nations, we can create lasting change.
