Launched in September 2015, The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a plan of action for the planet and a transformative vision for a better world. It aims to end all forms of poverty and recognizes that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth, while tackling climate change and environmental protection. Science will be essential to reach many of the goals of The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Sustainable solutions, whether at the global, regional or country level, require creativity, new advances in scientific knowledge, discoveries and innovations.

#Science4Sustainability is a social media campaign to promote science education and research to empower people to design the solutions they need. The campaign will begin on the World Environment Day, 5 June 2016 and end on the World Science Day, 10 November 2016.
