The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) agreed in the 2030 Agenda define the action needed to ensure a life in dignity for people around the world and the preservation of our planet and the natural resources it provides for us all. It will require action at the political, industry, scientific and, in particular, the civic level.
The BMZ’s civic engagement programmes are designed to attract as many people as possible in Germany. Age, ethnicity, sexual identity/orientation, religion and ideology (as set out in Germany’s Basic Law), physical or mental impairment, income and qualifications do not play a role. The BMZ supports anyone whose involvement in civic action adheres to the principles that guide Germany’s free democracy.
