The main idea behind our choice of new goals is to focus on human rights. By focussing on these, we hope to silence the critics of the current Millennium Development Goals. We are focussing on universal primary education, eradicating poverty, eradicating extreme hunger and thirst and improving universal health (maternal health, disease etc.) These were main goals from the previous MDG’s that still need further development/improvement.
Also, by categorising the goals, we found it easier to decide on goals for the development of the planet.
