 Promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all through inclusive quality education.

Promote peaceful and inclusive societies, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels. People everywhere should be free of fear from all forms of violence and feel safe as they go about their lives whatever their ethnicity, faith or sexual orientation.
