Peace and Justice

See all the Goals

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

No matter how many other goals we achieve, without peace and justice, everything else can so easily come crashing down.

Injustice, corruption, a lack of access to information or a way to hold leaders to account will undermine development everywhere. Conflict tears families living normal lives from their homes, and turns them into refugees fighting for survival overnight. That’s why this goal is crucial in the fight against extreme poverty.

Citizens should be able to have a say in how their country is run. They should be able to get hold of data that shows what governments and companies are doing, and hold them to account for their actions. It sounds simple, but we also need to make sure every person is counted, so there are enough basic services like schools and hospitals for people to thrive.

Samuel: Helping keep the peace in Kenya

Samuel Karita is sowing the seeds of change. Troubled by the perception that youths were senseless perpetrators of destruction and violence in Kenya, when in fact they were the victims of a divided country, Karita started a group committed to channelling young people’s frustrations towards positive change. Today, his efforts include peace clubs in more than 30 colleges and universities.

Spread the word

Stand as ONE

World leaders have agreed to 17 Global Goals that would mean a better life for all of us. The Goals are a plan to build a world where children don't go to bed hungry, where girls get the same opportunity to thrive as boys, and where people don't die of preventable diseases. It's one of the most incredible to-do lists ever written - but now we need to turn words into action.

As long as poverty, injustice and gross inequality exist in our world, none of us can truly rest.

Nelson Mandela

Mandela's words represent what it means to be a ONE member and at the birth of these ambitious new goals, we will not rest until they are achieved. Stand with more than 9 million others and in Mandela's honour - pledge to use your voice. We know it has power to change lives and bring about a better world for all of us, as ONE.
