We will join hundreds of Worldwide organisations on September 25th 2023 and raise an SDG flag to show our support for the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The Trust has the ambitious aim of becoming the world’s first Future Ready Community by being on track to achieve all of the 17 Global Goals by 2030.
This September will mark eight years since the world embraced the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. The SDGs, also known as the Global Goals, reflect a shared objective and ambition across all countries to end poverty and hunger everywhere, to combat inequalities within and among countries, to build peaceful, just, and inclusive societies, to protect human rights and promote gender equality of women and girls, and to ensure the lasting protection of the planet and its natural resources by 2030.
The Trust was set up in 2020 to put the community at the heart of the decision-making that affects them. The work of the trust is guided by the Loch Ken Plan which was launched in 2021 and is a plan that focuses on achieving sustainable local communities. The Plan is grouped into three themes, People, Prosperity and Planet. The Trust has made significant progress in areas of each theme, including supporting community events, extending the defibrillator network, and continued work on the Loch Ken Baseline Ecosystem Assessment. The Loch Ken Ranger Service, established in 2021 undertakes regular patrols of Loch Ken, on both land and water, as well as delivering a range of educational and environmental activities
Only 1 in 10 people in Britain are familiar with the SDGs, therefore raising the SDG flag this September is key to raising awareness and mobilising stakeholders for action. Join the global movement in championing the SDGs so together the 2030 Agenda can be achieved.
