The vision of the Global Goals international action plan is to set out a positive vision for the future - to tackle poverty and inequality and promote sustainable development across the world. There are 17 Global Goals which form the basis of a global partnership for sustainable development.
Our four main areas of work contribute to 14 of these goals:
Active Travel: More day to day journeys on foot or by bike
Food & Growing: More local food to be grown and eaten in our communities.
Volunteering: Provide meaningful volunteering opportunities for all.
Reduce & Repair: Helping to increase the lifespan of our everyday items.
Through our work we
improve overall health and wellbeing
reduce air, noise and water pollution
support communities to be more resilient in adapting to a changing climate
work with others demonstrating and learning about how we grow, cook, eat and travel for food; as well as looking at what we do with the food we throw away.
work with consumers and food suppliers so that more local food can be grown and eaten in the communities where we work
work with others to keep products and materials circulating in a way that retains their value for as long as possible
improve confidence and skills through quality training on fixing and riding bikes, food and growing, reuse and repair of materials
work with a range of partners at a local and national level to provide learning opportunities to enable others to develop similar activities in their own communities
provide a range of volunteering opportunities
provide access to a range of electric bikes to try so that people can consider an alternative, clean and affordable mode of travel to the car
make stronger and more cohesive neighbourhoods; less vehicle traffic reduces noise pollution and congestion; community growing projects improve the local environment
work with employers to help them support their employees to actively travel to work
help everyone access public bike share for leisure and work, reducing inequalities
