Sustainable Development Goals

What are the Sustainable Development Goals?

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a list of targets that every country needs to achieve by 2030 in order to prevent the biggest problems in the world: poverty, inequality and climate change. The 17 goals were agreed at the 2015 climate agreement in Paris and signed by almost 200 countries.

How do we work with the SDGs

Our itineraries boast a number of activities that are directly related to the SDGs including reforestation in Santa Elena, responsible consumption in an organic farm visit and sustainable cooking class, service in the community in Medellin and many others. We align many of our activities with the goals set out by Colombia and the regions we visit. In doing this we are able to measure our impact in relation to the problems the country is trying to solve and go some way to helping Colombia achieve its goals for 2030! Check out our Climate Policy.
