Together, leaving no one behind

THIS IS

OUR

AGE

The This is Our Age initiative is a powerful catalyst for change while working to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The This is Our Age initiative, created by SGI-UK is committed to fostering a sustainable and harmonious world.

We are dedicated to promote the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), translating their urgency and significance into events including music, art, dialogue and collective action.

The SDGs show how as a society we can work together to tackle worldwide issues such as poverty, climate change, inequality, peace and sustainability.

This is Your Age

A poem by Daisaku Ikeda, Buddhist philosopher, peacebuilder, educator, author and poet.

This is your age.

The future rests in your hands.

I hope you will make the twenty-first century truly wonderful.

Please make it a century in which the life of each individual is cherished and respected to the utmost.

A century without discrimination, without bullying, war or murder.

A century in which no child cries with hunger, in which no mothers or children take their own lives in despair.

A century without environmental destruction.

A century free of academic elitism, greed and materialism.

A century in which human rights are upheld as the most precious treasure.

A century of true democracy, in which people exercise sound judgement and pay no heed to the lies of the mass media.

I hope you will make it a century in which each of your precious dreams comes true and your unique individuality blossoms to the fullest.

To realise these goals, it is vital that each of you achieve victory, that each of you grow into people who possess both real ability and the sincerity to understand the hearts of others.

Your victory will be the victory of the twenty-first century.

You are our only hope.

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals
