THE UNITED NATIONS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

On 25 September 2015, Member States of the United Nations (UN) adopted the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals Agenda to guide the work of the organization and the international community until 2030. The agenda includes 17 goals, from ending poverty, promoting health and well-being, achieving gender equality and empowering women and girls, to promoting economic growth and decent work for all, providing equitable quality education at all levels, reducing inequality, combating climate change, and promoting peaceful and inclusive societies. The agenda is based on the vision of universal respect for human rights and human dignity; the rule of law, justice, equality and non-discrimination; respect for race, ethnicity and cultural diversity; and of equal opportunity permitting the full realization of human potential, leaving no one behind.

INVITATION FROM PCUN TO ALL PSYCHOLOGISTS

The Psychology Coalition of Non-Governmental organizations (NGOs) Accredited at the UN invites all psychologists to access and help to disseminate the UN 2030 agenda entitled “Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.” Further, we urge psychologists to integrate the framework and one or more of the sustainable development goals and their related targets into their teaching, research or practice.

PCUN MISSION

The Psychology Coalition of NGOs Accredited at the United Nations (PCUN) consists of psychologists who represent Non-Governmental Organizations accredited at the United Nations and psychologists affiliated with United Nations departments, agencies and missions. Members of the Coalition advocate for the application of psychological science, principles, and practice to the UN agenda, including the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. The Coalition seeks to accomplish its aims through advocacy, research, education, and policy and program development, guided by psychological knowledge and perspectives to promote human dignity, human rights, psychosocial well-being, resilience and positive mental health.
