The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. have launched a new Global Goals app and accessories to promote the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Samsung Galaxy phones will carry the free Global Goals app that defines each of the 17 goals showing users how they can take small actions towards achieving the SDGs. Every in-app advertisement a user sees raises funds that can be put toward a goal of that user's choice. A portion of the proceeds generated from sales of the special edition accessories will go directly to UNDP in support of the Global Goals.
Whether it is clean water, accessible education, or a peaceful society, we want you to champion a cause you believe in. Each time you send funds, select which goal you want that donation to be directed toward. Your contribution will go on to put that goal into action. Afterward, the app will continue to keep you updated on the projects that benefited from your help.
Turn on the lock screen feature and the Global Goals app will display a new engaging message from history's most influential leaders each time you reach for your phone.
The app will come pre-installed on Galaxy Note10 and Galaxy Note10+ and will be available for download for Samsung Galaxy Smartphones in 19 languages. The special edition phone cases and wireless charger will be available through Samsung.com and select Samsung Experience Stores in the U.S. and Korea.
The Sustainable Development Goals are a set of 17 interconnected goals in a universal call for people, planet and prosperity. By 2030, the SDGs will address the world’s biggest issues like poverty, inequality and climate change.
