In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development to achieve a better world by 2030. Started by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Goalkeepers is a catalyst for action toward these goals—bringing together leaders from around the world to accelerate progress toward ending poverty and fighting inequality. Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will Host the Annual Goalkeepers Event, Focusing on the Power of Youth to Drive Global Progress. Goalkeepers is a multiyear campaign dedicated to accelerating progress towards the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals). Using powerful stories, data, and partnerships, Goalkeepers highlights progress achieved, holds governments accountable, and brings together a new generation of leaders to address the world’s major challenges. This year, Goalkeepers will focus on youth population growth and how it affects future world progress. Speakers will showcase how investing in “human capital”-the health and education of young people-unlocks productivity and innovation, reduces poverty, and generates prosperity.
