Move Humanity aims to mobilize at least 1% of the wealth
of the world’s richest individuals each year towards ending
extreme poverty and achieving the Sustainable Development
Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 objectives – negotiated and agreed to by all 193 member states of the United Nations in 2015 – to end extreme poverty, achieve decent work for all, promote justice, peace and prosperity, and protect the natural environment from human-caused harms. Highlighting both challenges and opportunities, they are a practical tool for overnments, institutions, local communities, civil society organizations and businesses to work together towards a common and clear set of targets. The SDGs are time-bound, represent a universal agenda for every country, rich and poor, and are to be monitored annually.
