It is time for global action. In September 2015, global leaders adopted "Transforming our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development," which includes the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or "Global Goals" aimed at ending global poverty, promoting prosperity and well-being for all, and protecting the planet. Success depends not only on the 193 governments signed on to the Agenda, but also, crucially, on the commitment of civil society, academic institutions, the private sector, and all global citizens to act for change. As an editorial board, we imagined the unstoppable momentum of people inspired by the promise of the Global Goals putting their ideas into practice. We are therefore pleased to present iAM Volume 7 The Global Goals: From Promise to Practice.
iAM Volume 8 will be published in 2017 and will invite submissions of essays, videos, podcasts, music, visual art and infographics. OCIC is looking for a group of passionate and skilled volunteers to join our Editorial and Production Team.
