Alan AtKisson about the SDG

Have you heard about the SDG:s, the Sustainable Development Goals ?

Weather or not, it is time to make yourself more familiar with them. There are 169 sustainability-related targets grouped into 17 major categories. It is about our future.

The global agreement was signed at the UN September 25, 2015.

Last Thursday, I did an interview with Alan AtKisson, Scientist, consultant and musicians about the SDG:s (and his music video, but that will be another blog post). Here you can listen to a hopeful, committed and constructive person with knowledge of the negotiations that led to goals.

Want to know more about Alans work and the result of his co-operation with other organisations to help society transform to sustainability? Check out their website 17goals.org.

Here are the Sustainable Development Goals:

Goal 1. End poverty in all its forms everywhere
Goal 2. End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
Goal 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages

    Helt ärligt. Hur kan man 2016 ha en hemsida som inte fungerar på mobiltelefoner? (Vädercentralen alltså)

    1. Du är lite för generell i ditt uttryck, det finns nämligen rätt många telefoner som den fungerar utmärkt på. Men säkert också ett par där den inte fungerar optimalt. Vilken telefon refererar du till?

    Android 4.4, har prövat med både Samsung och Huawei och både Browser och Google Chrome. Samma fel överallt:
    1. Jättesvårt att navigera, antingen går det inte alls eller så tar det jättelångtid innan den reagerar.
    2. Alla temperaturer och andra väderdata visas som ”–” istället för siffror i en halv minut.
    3. Går inte att klicka på ”Sök städer få väder”, så man kan inte se något annat än Stockholm
    4. Går inte att välja annan kombination än Stockholm/Temperatur för ensambleprognosen.

      Använder sällan nallefån till surf öht pga svaga ögon och stor tumme. Men testade för skojs skull på min Samsung med Android 4.4.4 och Chrome. Förvisso via wifi men allt funkade.

      Har dock märkt tidigare att det kan vara betydligt segare på den lilla lokala station jag vill titta på via datorn. Lika via nallefån nu. Fick ta upp den en gång till och då gick det bra.

    2. Ok. Vi lägger lite annat vi jobbade på just nu åt sidan och speedar upp sidan. 🙂

    Wonderful goals above, but how reachable are they considering Oxfam’s latest report?
