In 2015, the United Nations adopted 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs), to make our planet more liveable for all by 2030. At the same time, Pope Francis speaks in the encyclical „Laudato Si“ about burning issues such as environmental and climate protection as well as unjust distribution of resources.
