The United Nations calls its 17 Sustainable Development Goals "the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all." With a target of achieving them by 2030, the goals are all interconnected and address the global challenges we face.

Goal 8 is "Decent Work and Economic Growth." As the UN puts it: "Sustainable economic growth will require societies to create the conditions that allow people to have quality jobs."
