Background

ARCHIVE BACKGROUND TEXT FROM 2013

Pyramid 2030 grew out of Pyramid 2012, a similar voluntary initiative that engaged about 1,200 people in more than 20 countries in doing Pyramid workshops, in 2012. The results were submitted to the Rio+20 global summit on sustainable development in Rio de Janeiro, June 2012. Everyone involved reported being very satisfied with the experience:  the participants and workshop organizers scored the Pyramid 2012 campaign a 9-out-of-10. (For the full background, watch the introductory video from 2013.)

Pyramid 2030 grew out of that successful campaign, and it has a more long-term vision. Our aim is to support the UN in the process of implementing the Sustainable Development Goals for the world. A commitment to create these Goals (also known as the “SDGs”) was one of the key outcomes of  Rio+20, and the UN needs our support to help make these new Goals, which will be launched in 2016, become reality.
