What is it?
In 2015 the United Nations set themselves a target of meeting 17 Sustainable Development Goals by the year 2030. At Raleigh everything we do is underpinned by trying to help achieve these goals. The Raleigh Borneo 17 Day SDG challenge takes each goal one day at a time and asks you to make one small act towards achieving that goal. Once you have completed your challenge we want you to share it with all your friends, whether on Facebook, Instagram or any other social media platform.
Why is it important?
We all have our part to play in making our world a better place for everyone in it. Sometimes people really want to make a difference but don’t know how to. By taking small actions and talking about them we can help spread the word about the Sustainable Development Goals and give more people the means to help.
Ok, I’m sold, what do I have to do?
On 1st September 2016 we will post the first challenge on our blog. We will also share this on our Facebook page and Instagram. Log onto the blog, check out the challenge and get going. When you’ve completed the challenge post what you’ve done on your Facebook feed. Remember to tag RaleighBorneo in your post with the following hashtags to make sure as many people as possible see it.

One more thing…….
Sometimes it’s easy to think that one person can’t make a difference, but you’re not on your own. By completing this challenge you stand with a community of people who stand right behind you in working to make lasting and positive change. In the words of our recent alumni Stella on expeditions:
“You’re not alone! There are so many awesome people that will be there all the time, they stand behind you, they motivate you, they support you and they cheer you up whenever you need it. And trust me, that’s one of the most amazing feelings in the entire world.”
We couldn’t have put it better ourselves!
