SDG 10: Reduced inequalities - Osa Mazwai

SDG 10: Reduced inequalities

Join Osa Mazwai as he learns more about SDG 10 and discovers his impact.

Inequalities based on age, income, sex, disability, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, access to services and opportunity continue to exist across the globe. Inequality threatens long-term social and economic development and erodes people’s sense of fulfilment and self-worth. Sustainable Development Goal 10 aims to "reduce inequality within and among countries by 2030". 

Reducing inequalities requires transformative change, involving eliminating discriminatory laws and practices. Covid-19 has deepened existing inequalities, with the poorest and most vulnerable communities having been hit the hardest. We can only aim to make the planet better for all if no one is excluded from the chance of a better, more dignified life. Political, economic and social policies need to be universal and to pay close attention to disadvantaged and marginalised communities.

Osa Mazwai, Investment strategist and singer/songwriter from Johannesburg, uses his platform to advocate for human and LGBTQIA+ rights. Osa is passionate about economics and anti-discrimination.

Osa started his learning journey about the importance of reduced inequalities, tutored by Saeed Atcha, CEO Youth Leads UK, MBE Deputy Lieutenant. 

In early 2022, the class met face to face for the first time. Through curiosity, group discussion and reflection, Osa and the Class learned that small but consistent actions from each of us make a considerable impact as a collective.

Osa begins his discovery of SDG 10

We invited Osa to join the Class of 2030 to focus on SDG 10. Lessons took place online, with a single goal in mind: to give Osa insight into the SDG to help him understand its relevance in achieving the 2030 goals.

Osa reflects on his experience in the Class of 2030 and how he found his impact

As a founding member of the Class, Osa believes that we need to open ourselves to listen and gain an understanding of the SDGs, to leave a better world for future generations. Osa hopes to co-opt as many members of society as possible to join the movement.

Learn with Osa Mazwai

Through three online lessons with his tutor, Osa was exposed to how inequality harms long-term social and economic development, poverty reduction and destroys people’s sense of fulfilment and worth. Inequality comes in many forms -income, gender, race, age, ability, exclusion – and leads to degradation of society. We need to all speak up against discrimination.
