In September 2015 the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were formally adopted by the UN General Assembly with the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. During the coming 15 years, 17 SDGs, linked to 169 targets, are to form an action plan to free humankind from poverty and return the planet to the path towards sustainability. These goals, which are one and indivisible, reflect the three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and ecological dimensions.

Sailing brings special attention to following values:

  1. SDG 3 "Good Health and Well Being" => we are practising the sailing sport

  2. SDG 5 "Gender Equality" => All sailors are equal and the sailing sport is being practised by all genders, both individually as in mixed teams

  3. SDG 11 "Sustainable Cities and Communities" => Our Lake "Galgenweel" is located in an urban environment which has to be cherished 

  4. SDG 14 "Life below water" => Sailing is caring for the environment where you practice the sport

  5. SDG 17 "Partnerships for the goals" => Spreading the message through the different networks in the sport.
