Project Everyone was founded by Richard Curtis, filmmaker and founder of Comic Relief. This is why…
The United Nations have launched The Global Goals for sustainable development, a series of ambitious targets to end extreme poverty, fight inequality & injustice & fix climate change for everyone by 2030.
If the goals are met, they ensure the health, safety and future of the planet for everyone on it. And their best chance of being met is if everyone on the planet is aware of them.
So the simple but mighty ambition of Project Everyone – is to share the global goals with all 7 billion people on this planet.
