Part III >>Introduction
Last week, on September 21st, people worldwide linked arms in observance of International Day of Peace. Established in 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly, this day exists to honour and fortify the global vision of non-violence and peace for all nations and peoples. Each year welcomes a new theme to advance this mission and for 2016, the focus is one we embrace wholeheartedly.
“The Sustainable Development Goals: Building Blocks for Peace” initiative endeavours to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals created by the UN, and to begin forward momentum towards a 2030 agenda. The UN calls each goal a “building block in the global architecture of peace” and we’re proud to do our part within that infrastructure. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be discussing how architecture plays in to sustainable development and how it supports the movement towards a greener future.
