Sustainable Development Goal Number Eight

At WeaTemps, we are committed to generating change in the way people work. We have aligned our goals with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. There are 17 key aims for achievement. In this news section we talk about Goal 8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth. Sustained and inclusive economic growth can drive progress, create decent jobs for all and improve living standards.

The Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection. More important than ever, the goals provide a critical framework for COVID-19 recovery

Goal 8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth

What does “decent work” mean? Decent work means opportunities for everyone to get work that is productive and delivers a fair income, security in the workplace and social protection for families, better prospects for personal development and social integration. A continued lack of decent work opportunities, insufficient investments and under-consumption lead to an erosion of the basic social contract underlying democratic societies: that all must share in progress.
