“The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015. It provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.” The statement comes from the SDGs page of the UN’s website.

“Holy Shit: Can Poop Save The World?” focuses primarily on SDG # 6: Clean Water and Sanitation to Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.
