“If you are allergic to fanfare you’d better bolt your doors and shutter your windows on September 25, because there is going to be a lot of it that day in the vicinity of the United Nations, when world leaders ratify the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. This is a genuinely big deal, of large consequence — let’s hope — especially for the poorest people on the planet.”

We’ve been talking about the Global Goals for a few weeks—now hear about their importance from ONE co-founder Bono in an op-ed piece, up now on Medium!

In the post, Bono talks about an incredible solar field project he recently saw in Rwanda as part of a trip with ONE and (RED), as well as the need to figure out the “how,” and not just the “what,” of the Global Goals.

You can see more about the ONE and (RED) trip to Rwanda and Nigeria in a piece CNN aired just this morning. In Kigali, Rwanda, Bono visited a hospital he had been to with ONE and (RED) 10 years earlier, and the difference made since that time is amazing to see. It’s a must-watch interview:

Watch the interview, read the op-ed, then learn more about the Global Goals before they’re adopted at the United Nations General Assembly on Friday, September 25.
