Goal 16:

 Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions


World peace is at the heart of Goal 16. Everyone should enjoy a peaceful life within an inclusive society built upon justice, accountability, fair institutions and sustainable development. Yet devastatingly, persecution, inequality, abuse and injustice tear up societies and lacerate the foundations of communities across the globe. But they don’t have to. Together we can build our world upon compassion and a strong moral compass. Goal 16 is all about Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions for all.
