“In 2015, world leaders gathered at the United Nations to adopt the2030 Agenda. Progress has been made over the years, but it has been painfully slow and badly affected by the pandemic. We have seen major setbacks: poverty and hunger are widening, the gap between rich and poor is widening, gender inequality and the climate emergency are worsening. Expo is the most suitable place to renew the commitment and keep the promises made“. It is from the square of Al Wasl that Amina Mohamed, Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations, delivered his message, in opening of the Global Golas Week. For the first time in history, the event that hosts the countries of the world for discuss the sustainable development goals of the 2030 Agenda, was held outside the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
Seventeen goals that, in these days, we are reminded at the entrance and on the streets of the whole Expo: put an end to fame and poverty, fight against inequalities, promote social and economic development, addressing climate change, building peaceful societies, the main themes, which have universal validity, that is, all countries, large and small, must make a contribution, based on their own. And to involve not only heads of state, ministries, politicians and activists, but also citizens, Expo has organized various initiatives to which they Volunteers from the San Marino pavilion also participated.
