The four best apps for exploring the Global Goals

In September 2015, world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. These Global Goals focus on equity and universality in order to ensure that the furthest behind are reached and that no one is left behind. I’ve trawled the Apps store to find the very best Apps for you to use to explore the Global Goals.

Global Goals

The Global Goals app lets you choose a goal that matters to you and help put it on the map. Take pictures and videos to show off your piece of the world, then watch your impact grow as you voice is pinned on the Global Goals map next celebrities and other personalities from all around the globe.

Global Goals shows you the impact you are making on your audience, so you can see how your contributions are helping make the world a better place.

What’s more, it gives you access to hidden exclusive content, and keeps you in the loop with exciting Global Goals initiatives. This was by far my favorite App available and it has great social integration so you can bring your friends and colleagues along with you.

the User Interface provides a media rich experience with lots of graphics to make finding out more about the Global Goals fun and interesting. It might be quite a demanding application to use if you don’t have quite a new phone with a fast processor.
