Each December, there comes the time to reflect on life and look ahead at what’s to come. We make personal resolutions to improve our lives and to give ourselves another chance. 2016 will be an unprecedented opportunity for all of us to build together the world’s new resolutions.

Last September, the world adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years: End extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and fix climate change. You know how you’ll change your life next year. What would you wish for your world?

Choose one of the 17 global goals and share your #GlobalResolution, the action that you are willing to take to achieve it and make the world a better place for you and for others.
