After months of hard work TheGoals.org is starting to take form. There is still lots of work to be done but you can sign up for the news letter right now to get the latest updates.
TheGoals.org will bring the UN’s international goals for sustainable development closer to the people and make thousands of young people both learn about them, but more importantly make an impact on them. TheGoals.org offers a unique open crowd-learning experience to connect students and youth from all corners of the world, using even the most basic mobile devices. The aim of TheGoals.org is to build understanding and cooperation about the upcoming international goals for sustainable development, which are to be adopted by the United Nations in Autumn, 2015.
TheGoals.org is the place for curious and innovative young people who want to learn more about the upcoming sustainable development goals and how to contribute to their fulfilment. That is, building a smarter and more sustainable world.
Together, with you, we want to create unprecedented learning. We want to engage you and use crowd-sourcing to get stories of local challenges, successes and innovative solutions in pursuing sustainable development from around the world.

Edumanity has signed a memorandum of understanding together with the Nobel Peace Price winner and social entrepreneur Muhammad Yunus. It all started with the network Creative Lund that thought Edumanity would be the perfect link to an idea that Mr Yunus had. A creative discussion over dinner and a new project was born!
The aim is to create a project that helps the illiterate children of Bangladesh, to in a fun way, learn how to read. A mobile based game will be created and released in Bangladesh to start with, and who knows where it will end? Together with Yunus, Edumanity will literally change the world!

What gets you up in the morning?
I am passionate about meeting new people, and visiting new places. I love working in projects that, in concrete ways, improve the lives of others.

I enjoy talking to and in front of people. The bigger the group the better!
Do you have any hidden talents?
I’m an expert at making crème brûlée. I have also jumped parachute 12 times.
What interests do you have?
My big interest in life is riding, something I’ve been doing since childhood. Above all, show jumping and dressage. I have also worked as a riding instructor and off.
What is your dream destination?
Traveling is a passion of mine and the only continent I have not visited yet (except the poles) is South America. I really want to go to Costa Rica to see wild tapirs!
