From 12 March to 1 April, a team Draufsicht Bamenda visited Draufsicht Berlin in Germany. Together as a Draufsicht Global we wanted to examine what contributes to inequality in our societies and what a world could look like in which opportunities are more evenly distributed. The focus was on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and in particular SDG No. 10 “Reducing inequality within, from and between countries”
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
In 2015, the United Nations adopted a total of 17 goals for sustainable development to be achieved by 2030. The so-called SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) take responsibility not only for the Global South, but for all countries in the world. Whether in Germany or Cameroon, the implementation of the SDG is intended to enable all people to live in harmony with nature, peace and prosperity. No one is to be left behind.
Sounds good, doesn’t it?
But how realistic is such a world? And who cares about SDGs anyway? The agenda was adopted by the world’s leaders, but the goals are not binding under international law. We’re looking at it!
SDG 10 – Reducing inequality in and between countries
Whether on a global level, in the comparison between Bavaria and Meck-Pomm or just for a walk through Neukölln. Inequality is everywhere. People have very different backgrounds when they go through life.
SDG 10, therefore, focuses on reducing inequalities. Together as Draufsicht Global and the support of “Weltwärts Begegnungen“, we want to take a closer look at this goal and, above all, look at what contributes to inequality in our societies and what a world could look like in which opportunities are more evenly distributed.
Draufsicht Global is supported by ENGAGEMENT GLOBAL with funds of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. The programme funds projects that aim to develop and cultivate participants’ intercultural and global skills and thus to promote global citizenship. The funding line enables project partners to establish long-term working relationships in which they are equal partners, to build information disseminators’ expertise and to strengthen youth group exchange structures. As the projects are designed to foster global learning, participants gain a comprehensive picture of the partner countries involved and of the Global South and Global North.
