Sustainability means meeting the needs of the present in a way that will not compromise the ability of future generations, i.e. the children and grandchildren of this generation, to meet their own survival and development needs.
It regards to the practical application of rules, methods of production and economic behavior that contribute to the protection of the environment in the strengthening of social cohesion and good governance. Its ultimate goal is the development of prosperous and sustainable societies for present and future generations.
In this direction, 17 goals (Social Development Goals – SDG), were established by the UN, as a collective effort in a global level, for a fairer, more peaceful, prosperous world and for the protection of the environment. These goals require cooperation between governments, public and private sectors and citizens.
Through these new goals, which will be implemented over the next years, the countries will begin efforts to eradicate poverty, fight inequalities, include all social groups in public life and tackle climate change.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared plan for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and in the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call to action by all countries - developed and developing - through global cooperation.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 were adopted by the UN and almost all its member countries including Greece and the EU. As a continuation of the Millennium Goals, the 17 Goals support the need to understand our "common future" as a basic mission and that problems such as poverty and social inequality, the climate crisis and the degradation of water resources, the poor quality of education and the need for decent work in order to achieve economic development are inextricably linked and concern the whole of people as well as each one individually.
The SDGs are the result of decades of work by countries and the UN, including the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs.
