Inspired by social justice
The legacy of great leaders like Nelson Mandela must be passed on to the new generations, inspiring them to commit to social justice, to uphold human rights and promote sustainable development.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the roadmap for the mobilization of future leaders around the world. This new leadership will need to take further decisive steps towards the achievement of those goals.
