Who are we?
We are a dynamic network organisation and a British registered charity, charity number 1179511. Our loyal international membership includes NGOs, faith leaders, media, philanthropic individuals, businesses, change makers, academics, change-focused influencers and entrepreneurs. Our goal is to end modern slavery, stop human trafficking, and achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 8.
What are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)?
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 global goals adopted by the United Nations in 2015, with the aim of achieving sustainable development by 2030. These goals address various social, economic, and environmental challenges, including poverty, hunger, health, education, gender equality, clean water, economic growth, climate change, and more.
The SDGs provide a framework for countries, organizations, and individuals to work towards a more sustainable and equitable world, through concerted efforts and partnerships at local, national, and global levels. GSN works towards achievement of SDG Goal 8 and specifically on SDG Goal 8.3 (Job Creation and Enterprise Development), 8.5 (Decent Work for All) and 8.7(Ending Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking).
Why partner with us?
Our biggest strength is our global network. We believe we can make the most significant impact when working together. We have many examples where members have worked together to achieve extraordinary things, partnering with organisations like Interpol to rescue victims of human trafficking and find missing children through facial recognition technology, among others.
There are many benefits for institutions joining the GSN. Learn more here.
