The Global Goals


Global Goals Banner (Thinner)

The Scotland Malawi Partnership is proud to be supporting the implementation of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals in Scotland.

Scotland was amongst the first nations to sign up to these 17 'Global Goals'  which will fight poverty, climate change and inequality both in Scotland and across the world.

The Scotland Malawi Partnership has three strategic aims when it comes to the Global Goals:


1. Government and Parliament

The SMP is encouraging Government and Parliament to embrace the Global Goals. Every Party Leader in the Scottish Parliament has pledged support to the Global Goals for the Scotland Malawi Partnership.

We are delighted that 100 of Scotland's 129 MSPs have chosen one Global Goal they will champion in Parliament for us. Check out all their videos here, or see the 5 party leaders below.


2. Wider Civic Society

The SMP has helped secure funding for SCVO to lead with the development of a national website coordinating Scotland's delivery of the Global Goals, a website where you can learn more about the SDGs in Scotland, find out how you can get involved, and share your own story.

We've also developed a special pop-up exhibition made up of 17 banners, each one giving an inspiring case study of a Scotland-Malawi people-to-people link working towards each goal. 

The exhibition is free and available for any group in Scotland to use, to help raise awareness of the goals in their community. 

So far it's been exhibited at more than 50 events the length and breadth of Scotland, viewed by more than 10,000 Scots. 

Email us to host the exhibition >>
