Goal 8: Promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all

“A continued lack of decent work opportunities, insufficient investments and under-consumption lead to an erosion of the basic social contract underlying democratic societies: that all must share in progress. . The creation of quality jobs will remain a major challenge for almost all economies well beyond 2015.

Sustainable economic growth will require societies to create the conditions that allow people to have quality jobs that stimulate the economy while not harming the environment. Job opportunities and decent working conditions are also required for the whole working age population.”

There is more to work than a stable source of income, safety and prosperity. It touches the essence of our human existence: the way we interact and collaborate in groups. How might we contribute to the common good? Will we be recognised and valued for our effort, our skills and our dedication? Artists can make us aware of what counts and the situation can be improved.
