End poverty, protect the planet, ensure wealth

United Nations Association New Zealand

The United Nations Association of New Zealand has 17 sustainable development goals.

Sustainable Development Goals:

In September 2015, the United Nations Association of New Zealand signed up to 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

These goals aim to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure wealth for all New Zealanders.

The SDGs have 169 targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.

But it’s not just up to UNA NZ to reach these goals. People like you and me have to do our part to ensure New Zealand reaches each target successfully.

So what will you do?

Poverty

(Intended social media caption)

Poverty is all around us. That boy in your class who you say is always complaining?

He hasn’t had breakfast for 3 months.

The girl in your netball team who always looks scruffy?

She lives in a car with her mum.

With your help, we can change this.

What will you do?

(Intended explanation for the Poverty video on the UNANZ website) 

Poverty is reaching crisis point in New Zealand. Nearly one in three New Zealand children, around 220,000, live below the poverty line. It is an issue of great importance to New Zealanders, and often goes unnoticed. This Sustainable Development Goal aims to improve living standards for Kiwi’s, increase the supply of affordable housing, in turn dropping poverty rates and ensuring prosperity for all. The people of New Zealand need to realise that poverty doesn’t just happen offshore, it is well and truly an issue in our own backyards, and struggling families have to be made a priority.


Health and Well-being

Between 600-800 people in New Zealand have been estimated to die each year due to alcohol.

Your mum, dad, brother, sister or best friend could be next.

With your help, we can change this.

(Intended explanation for the Health and Well-being video on the UNANZ website)

It’s not what we’re drinking, it’s how we’re drinking. Over a third of young people engage in binge drinking and have hazardous drinking patterns. It is estimated that alcohol takes the lives of 600-800 Kiwi’s every year. The binge drinking culture in New Zealand is not only a problem now, but will cause problems in years to come. If our youth are engaging in hazardous binge drinking, who are the next leaders of our nation going to be?

 


Gender Equality

(Intended social media caption)

Heard the saying empowered women empower women?

There’s a problem in this country, and we need to turn it around.

Women are often underrepresented and underpaid in many sectors of the workforce.

With your help, we can change this.

What will you do?

(Intended explanation for the Gender Equality video on the UNANZ website)

The gap between men and women in the New Zealand workforce is well and truly evident. This doesn’t just mean pay, but position of power in public and private sectors and opportunities for development and education. Women make up two thirds of those earning the minimum wage, and only 12% of directors in New Zealand are female. With women heavily underrepresented in the workforce, this only paves an uncertain future for our female leaders of tomorrow. In the words of Helen Clark, gender equality is not only the right thing to do, but the smart thing to do.
