SDGs go public: brochure "The World We Want - The Czech Footprint in the World"

The publication "The World We Want - The Czech Footprint in the World" is intended for all those who are interested in sustainable development. It informs about the Sustainable Development Goals (known as SDGs) and the so-called Agenda 2030, which is a program for the development of the world until 2030 approved in 2015 by all UN Member States. You will learn how this program is being implemented after five years, and you will find out more about Czech contribution to the SDGs fulfillment in specific economic, development and humanitarian stories.

Successful examples include the project of the Czech company DOT Glasses. With affordable universal eyeglasses, it improves the eyesight of thousands of the lowest income populations in India, Bangladesh, Ethiopia and Kenya, and fulfills SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-being. At the same time, it is paving the way for other Czech companies, as it has developed a unique logistics model enabling to reach the most remote parts of the world. Furthermore, the Czech-Lebanese mobile clinic, which was established as a small scale local project of the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Lebanon, is moving around the Lebanese countryside carrying out COVID-19 testing. Information about the clinic's movements make headlines in the Lebanese media on a regular basis. The mobile clinic not only helps against the pandemic, but also strengthens the excellent reputation of the Czech healthcare system in the region.
