Sustainable Development

Climate change, global warming, and other looming issues - which felt like problems of a distant future - have now become problems we cannot ignore. Warmer winters are melting the ice caps, forest fires become more frequent and last longer, and species face mass extinction due to ecosystem destruction. What future reality is in store for us? Jeffrey Sachs, professor of economics at Columbia University, offers us a way to navigate these impending disasters.

Through his lecture series on GREAT MINDS, he shows us the roadmap to protect both current and future generations from environmental destruction in a sustainable way. Achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 can bring us that desired outcome, he says. What are the 17 goals which can create the future we need? Where do we stand right now? Professor Sachs paints us a picture of an ideal world we can all work towards.
