Resolution on Sustainable Development Goals

1) The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) Council in 2016 has encouraged the member churches to be involved in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030) which will indeed make the world a better place. However, we still find that many people haven’t even the slightest idea what the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are, much less how to go about achieving them. The Assembly affirms the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and call upon all the Member Churches to:

- intensify their education and work on the SDGs,

- develop concrete programs, to work on achieving the SDGs in their respective countries and 

- engage governments and national or local organizations for implementation of SDGs.
