SDG 10: Reduced inequalities - Osa Mazwai

SDG 10: Reduced inequalities

Join Osa Mazwai as he learns more about how we can reduce inequality for all.

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.

Join Osa as he learns about the importance of reduced inequalities, tutored by Saeed Atcha, CEO Youth Leads UK, MBE Deputy Lieutenant.
