Samsung together with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) announced a new partnership in support of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
As part of this initiative they plan to release the ‘Samsung Global Goals’ application for Galaxy users to increase awareness and understanding of the challenges the Goals address and why they are important. Also the application will provide simple ways that people can donate to help address the challenges and fuel the actions needed to accomplish the Global Goals.
“Now more than ever, we have the potential to use the power of technology to address the world’s most pressing challenges,” said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications, Samsung Electronics.
He added “Our partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) will provide Galaxy users with easy, impactful ways to learn about the Global Goals and support the causes important to them so we can collectively make a difference.”
“This partnership with UNDP and Samsung will not only harness technological innovation in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, but will mobilize the next generation of global citizens to take action and achieve the goals together. Only with a joint effort by everyone – private sector, civil society, and people across the world – can we truly have impact and change the world for the better.” said Achim Steiner, UNDP Administrator.
The new ‘Samsung Global Goals’ app will give consumers easy and effective ways to learn more about each of the 17 Global Goals and take part in small actions to help support the issues that matter most to them.
