All this means that we are more and more one world. At the same time, we are increasingly aware of our influence on nature and climate, and of the great importance of our natural world. The United Nations is keen to use sustainable solutions to tackle the greatest global challenges. To do this, it has formulated 17 Sustainable Development Goals that it aims to achieve by 2030.
