Global Goals

Hello beautiful people!
A little time ago I found out about a project I want to share with you today. The project is called "The Global Goals" and there are many celebrities supporting it. Through the campaign the 17 global goals shall get more attention by people posting photos or videos about the goals that are most important to them. Most of you probably know that I want to take part in making the world a better place and so I thought that taking part in this project is the perfect chance for me to get my voice out there.
(If you want to find out more about the project you can visit the homepage here)

All of the goals are really important to make this world a better place but if I'd have to choose three goals I'd probably choose number 2,4 and 5. I thought I could just write a little bit about those three goals and share my opinion with all of you. So without further ado, here's what I came up with.

Zero Hunger

Hunger has always been a problem in this world but it can't just go on like this forever. Nobody should die from hunger or have to feel hungry all the time. We can't just use the excuse that there isn't enough food in this world because there definitely is. The reason is that it isn't distributed in a fair way. In some countries people have too much to eat. Their cupboards are full of food and still the supermarkets have to litter tons of food that nobody bought. So while we have tons of food we don't even eat, other people have nothing to eat. I think that we have to change this inequality and give people the chance to have enough food to live a healthy life.

Quality education

A big step to afford everyone to get a good job and to make them understand the inequalities in this world is a quality education. Everyone should have the chance to go to school and learn how to write or read. There are still about 780 million analphabets in the world and we can't just accept that. Just imagine that you wouldn't have the chance to go to school or college. Imagine that you didn't know hoe to write, read or solve the easiest problems in maths. What would you do? How would you try to earsn money and live your life? The thing is that those people don't really have a chance.
No education = No (well-paid) job
If those people don't have any education at all then they can't do anything about their situation. They can't do much to stop hunger or do something about any other inequalities. We have to change this and give everyone the chance to go to school, so that they can learn how to better their situation theirselves. This is also requirement to make the other goals sustainable.

Gender equality

Gender equality is not just a problem in developing countries but a problem you can still find in every country. It shows in the differing wages or in domestic violence. There are still so many prejudices against women. Some say we aren't as smart, powerful or strong as men. But let's be real, haven't we proved that we can be just as good as men over the past few centuries? Men and women should be treated equally. Maybe it's true that there are differences between men and women but there are also differences between one man and another man, so what's the point in treating people differently? The human rights say that everyone's the same and I totally agree to that. Nobody should be treated differently and we should try our best to treat people the best way possible.

This project is very important to me and there are still a few days left for you to share the goals most important to you and get ather people to think about those.
Please let me know which goals are most important to you and share this project to make those goals more popular.

I really hope that this makes you think about the situation of the world these days. Even if I can get only one person to think because off this post it's enough. The more people think about it, the more they discuss it with others and this way we can all do something to change this world.

I will talk to you soon,

Norina xx
