On the first day of the new year, 1 January 2016, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) officially took effect marking the most ambitious and important set of New Years’ resolutions ever made -- 17 #GlobalGoals that aim to:

  • End poverty in all its forms, everywhere
  • End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and sustainable agriculture
  • Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
  • Promote just, peaceful and inclusive societies


In the spirit of resolutions and as the most important global goal ever put forth to address issues of malnutrition, One Goal joins world leaders in particular support of Sustainable Development Goal #2 (SDG2): End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.

With the #GlobalGoals in place, 2016 is the year the global movement to end hunger and improve nutrition for all children truly begins. 

As your making your own New Years' Resolutions this month, One Goal challenges you to forgo the ordinary and make a resolution this year for the movement to end child malnutrition and hunger. 

Together, we can give the next generation of footballers a future where their dream of becoming a champion isn't hindered by poor nutrition.
