With a commitment to Transforming Our World, the United Nations 2030 agenda is a global challenge for sustainable development.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are of crucial importance to humanity and to our planet.
For humanity, it is critical to eradicate hunger and poverty so that every human being can lead a life of dignity and is able to use their abilities equally and live in a healthy environment. Likewise, it is crucial that we protect our planet from degradation resulting from unsustainable consumption and production and from extreme events due to climate change.
If we fail in this, we will also fail to meet the needs of present and future generations.
Every human being has a right to a prosperous and full life in economic, social and technological terms. Yet fulfilling these rights and our desire for material progress cannot put nature at risk. A prosperous, inclusive, enlightened society is one that is capable of building the present and the future and living in peace. Without peace, there is no development; without development, there is no peace.
The changes brought about by globalisation require political and economic social organisations to respond with scientific and technological progress. This can only be achieved with a decisive contribution from the basic sciences, which are crucial to addressing global challenges such as access to nutritious food, basic health care, understanding the effects of climate change, and the accelerated extinction of biodiversity and natural resources.
While without the contribution of the basic sciences it is difficult to develop technology and innovation, this relationship is often misunderstood.
The Basic Sciences, together with the Social Sciences and Humanities, constitute a solid basis for the creation of informed citizens, professionals, decision-makers and entrepreneurs that are capable of making decisions that positively affect our world's future, with a full understanding of the stakes and free of prejudice.
The Basic Sciences are the foundation for the United Nations Agenda 2030 (People, Planet, Prosperity).
In this regard, the eradication of poverty - a goal which goes hand in hand with achieving world peace - is a fundamental requirement for transforming our world in the interests of future generations.
Understanding and using the Basic Sciences is a necessary challenge for the construction of a model of sustainable development, in the belief that this is the only way to Transform Our World.
