18 Days of Global Goals (Day 17)

16. Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.

In other words: We should all live in harmony. The goal also calls for an end to violence and corruption.* This is obviously easier said than done but there is no reason why we can't focus our energies to get a little closer to being peaceful, genuine human beings.**

Asking yourself what you can do to help the UN reach their goal?

On a National level: Peace and justice are goals that begin on an individual level and grow outward. They start with everyday people treating one another with respect and lending a helping hand when needed.

On a International level: Promote peace and justice, learn more about the world, have cross-cultural discussions, actually treat everyone you meet with respect and call on world leaders to send robust aid to countries in difficult situations.
