Prosperity

Learn

Prosperity means being comfortable. The concept of prosperity is linked to the theme of economy, culture, art, environment, sustainability and human rights, i.e. all contexts of human life. The 2030 Agenda requires a strong commitment to each of these issues so that people can live their lives to the fullest, enjoying a fulfilling life in harmony with nature.

Daily actions

7 – Affordable and clean energy
  • Cover the pots with a lid. This will reduce the amount of energy needed to boil the water by 75%. 
  • Turn off electronic devices like TVs and computers when you don’t need them.
  • Turn off the lights when you leave a room. Turning off the lights for even a few seconds saves more energy than it takes to turn it back on. 
  • Use energy-saving light bulbs and set your appliances to low consumption mode. 
  • Only fill the tea kettle with the required amount of water. 
  • Turn down your house thermostat. Make sure you’ve closed the windows tightly and wear an extra shirt, so you’ll stay warm without wasting energy. 
  • Support projects to install solar energy in schools, homes and offices. 
9 – Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
  • Keep up to date with the latest technologies and innovations. 
  • Do not throw anything away, give it away. Buying new, more modern electronic devices is inevitable, however old devices often still perform well. Gift your old devices or recycle them, some parts can be reused 
  • Participate, with a small financial contribution (if you have the means), in projects that provide infrastructure for basic needs. 
11 – Sustainable cities and communities
  • When you can, share the car with family or friends; give colleagues a lift if you walk the same street or get a lift. 
  • Raise your awareness of your city’s “carbon footprint”, and ways to improve it. The carbon footprint is used to calculate greenhouse gas emissions from products, services, organizations, events and people. 
  • Request and support the development of sports and recreational spaces in your neighborhood and in your city. These spaces help build stronger, healthier, happier and safer communities. 
  • Use public transport, city bikes and other environmentally friendly means of transportation. 
  • Join small local groups to work together on safe and accessible public spaces (e.g. green spaces and gardens), especially for women, children, the elderly and people with disabilities.  
  • Learn about and visit the historical sites, natural parks, museums and cultural centers of your city. Tell and share your experiences with your friends, family, colleagues, etc. 
8 – Decent work and economic growth
  • Support campaigns to end all forms of modern-day slavery, human trafficking and forced marriages. By modern slavery we mean: sexual exploitation, poorly paid domestic work without rights, forced labor in construction and agriculture
  • If you work, you demand safe working conditions. 
  • Participate in training and refresher programs to increase your knowledge and the things you can do. 
10 – Reduce inequalities
  • Once a month have a coffee with someone with different passions and interests than yours.  
  • Read a lot and travel to learn about different cultures.  
  • Support a child at a distance so that he can attend school. 
  • Learn to respect all kinds of people who can do things differently than you.
