The purpose of SDG 4 is to ensure inclusive and decent quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for everyone.
Some of the targets are free primary and secondary education with comparable learning abilities and outcomes, access to affordable technical education to reduce barriers in skills development, eliminating discrimination in education in terms of ethnicity, religion, race, gender or political opinion, ensure universal literacy and numeracy and guarantee the supply of qualified teachers in developing countries.

SDG 13 takes urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts. With the rising greenhouse gas emissions, the responsibility for minimizing these effects had become vital. The increases in greenhouse gas concentrations are driving negative change at a high rate. SDG 13 encourages to overcome this crucial problem by implementing climate change measures into strategies, planning, and policies, regardless of the “influence” level.
Reasons for working with SDG 13:
Global warming continues to break annual records, with the strongest storms, hottest years, longest droughts and more. The arctic ice is melting at an alarming rate, and the global average sea level rose 19 cm between 1901 and 2010.…
The goal of SDG 10 is to reduce inequality within and among countries.
Reasons to work with SDG 10
As global income inequality continues to rise, there is no naturally occurring end in sight. The wealthiest 10 percent of the global population are earning up to 40 percent of total global income. The poorest 10 percent earn only between 2 percent and 7 percent of total global income.
Income inequality has been shown to be the root course of many societal issues. Obtaining global sustainability cannot happen without addressing income inequality. Even though, this goal has a primary focus on income inequality, it also encompasses inequalities based on other factors.…
Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.
Reasons to work with SDG 17
Without a global commitment to sustainable development goals, they serve as little more than good intentions. The will and cooperation of the United Nations is the backbone that can drive global change.
This also means ensuring fair and continued financial aid, between countries. As of 2016, only six countries met the international target to keep official development assistance above 0.7% of gross national income. At the same time, 79% of all imports from developing countries enter developed countries duty-free, an imbalance which keeps developing countries struggling for financial independence.…
Ensuring universal access to affordable electricity by 2030.
Reasons to work with SDG 7
Our consumption of fossil fuel has been and continues to be the primary driver of global climate change. At the same time, more and more people demand access to cheap energy, which provides the basis for a good living standard.
However, one in seven people still lacks access to electricity. This demand must be met with alternative fuel sources, not to further the pressure on our ecosystems.

Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation.
Reasons to work with SDG 9:
Without infrastructure and innovation, there are little grounds for a society to develop and thrive. The same is true for the growth of new industries, information, and communication technologies.
For many nations, lacking infrastructure is a severe hindrance to growth, which stands in the way of obtaining other Sustainable Development Goals. Even today, some low-income African countries experience lacking infrastructure as a cause to business productivity losses, with up to 40 percent.
How is 2030 Builders addressing SDG 9:
By promoting sustainable industries, and investing in scientific research and innovation, nations can develop this key component of sustainable development.…
