SDGs - the Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations has created 17 SDGs - the Sustainable Development Goals. See them below and use them on this platform to to chart the signs of progress toward the SDGs in your town.

Find more information about each one on the UN's website. Excitingly, you can mix the sets of icons used on this platform to share the features of your home place.

As described in this article, Green Map System has also matched our set of icons to the SDGs to encourage greater understanding of these intersecting symbol sets. Download the PDF or view here. We welcome the opportunity to work together to increase the vitality and visibility of the SDGs.
