“Sustainable development is the pathway to the future we want for
all. It offers a framework to generate economic growth, achieve social justice, exercise
environmental stewardship and strengthen governance.”
– Ban Ki-moon

We live in a world interconnected geographically and economically. To advocate only for the
U.S. is a self-centered philosophy destined for failure. As a global leader, the U.S. has a
responsibility to look beyond our borders, to do good for all people and to take care of our
planet for future generations.
