Reduced inequalities

Reduce inequality within and among countries

The richest 85 people in the world own as much as the poorest half of humanity. That takes a while to sink in, doesn’t it? And the gap between rich and poor is getting wider – 7 out of 10 people live in countries where economic inequality is worse than it was 30 years ago.

Inequality fuels crime, corruption, and poverty, so this goal is essential for a better world for all of us. We need to make sure that more overseas aid reaches the poorest people and the poorest countries, so no one is left behind. We need to make sure that governments and international bodies adopt policies that promote equal opportunities for all.

As children, we have a built-in sense of outrage when faced with things that aren’t fair. Wouldn’t it be amazing if future generations didn’t have to come to terms with how deeply unfair extreme inequality makes the world they live in?
