Ep64 - Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Majken Gilmartin: Global Goals: How Gender Equality Can Save the World

With just 10 years left to achieve the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals are once again in the spotlight. But this time, there is a sense of urgency. Amid growing threats from climate change and the frantic search for sustainable answers to an array of related global problems, one critical solution has come to the forefront: gender equality. A recent study, in fact, found that the most impactful tool for addressing global warming would involve boosting the education of women and girls while simultaneously expanding access to family planning services.

Actor, and UN Goodwill Ambassador Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Global Goals World Cup founder Majken Gilmartin have been on the frontline of the climate and gender action agenda, raising awareness across the world. Through the Global Goals World Cup and activations at the United Nations, both have ensured that the conversations around both topics remain central to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals for a greener future for all.
