Sustainable Development Goals

Switch to Threaded View
Discussion started by Angeles Mendoza Sammet 4 years ago


 This past weekend the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals during the Sustainable Development Summit. From what I watched on the first and second day, I found the speeches of the speaker from Amnesty International and the president of Boliva, Evo Morales, to be the remarkable because of they offered a different perspective from other talking about investment and finance. 

 The President of Bolivia, Evo Morales, is the only one I heard talking about the impacts of capitalism. His speech can be watched at He is the 6th speaker on the 5th plenary.

 Salil Shetty, from Amnesty International spoke  uring the 4th plenary

Goals 2.3 and 4.5 mention indigenous peoples, although there is no goal specific to indigenous peoples ( The document Indicators and a Monitoring Framework for the Sustainable Development Goals (Leadership Council of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network 2015 ) includes various indicators that mention indigenous people.
