Most of students would have heard about "The Millennium Development Goals". Even in the middle school's Social studies there is the chapter that shows the goals.
Very long time ago our people lived in nature. But after people started to use nature, we faced lots of problems.
There was a gap between rich and poor, men and women. Some were extremely rich and some were extremely poor.
Women had their right to vote. It have been for 100 years but their social standing are lower than men.
By the way, the global warming is another serious problem. Animals and plants are in danger.
All of these problems are made by humans and of course humans must solve it.
Here is the question.
Do you know "The Millennium Development Goals"? And "Do you know why it is important in these days?"
This is the answer, "The millennium development goals is the solution of the problem."

"So, were they successful?"
Many deveoped counties say it was pretty successful. They help the poor and try to figure it out. On the other hand they say it was not enough.
The data show that this UN MDGS were finished and it was quite successful. Developing countries' poor were 47% in 1990 but it decreased to 14%, and the primary schooling was increased to 91%.
But we still have more problems. These days, because of fights and bad environments, refugees are increasing. We have to keep trying to find a way to work out.
This is Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs).
UN established "UN Sustainable Development Goals" to solve more seventeen problems, and it will start in 2016 to 2030.
I hope these efforts will be successful:) Then the world will be much safer and happier.
