  1. @Full Metal Jacket … obviously you did not read the news article. It is mentioned in there. Who’s laughing now? At you?
    Third paragraph, first line (SDG). Obviously, you do not (or cannot) read! The “metal” in your jacket is showing.

  2. @ Lab….ah what are the sustainable development goals….lmao. You have been living on the planet Neptune it seems.

  3. I am in agreement with @A word of caution … The written article is full of “nice words”, with no articulation on “to find innovative strategies to end poverty, address inequalities and address the pressing issue of climate change.” … These “INITIATIVES” needs lots of money to accomplish: staff, transportation, location fees, maintenance, etc., So, as @A word of caution stated “Nothing is for free”!

    HOW – in these hard covid times, and escalating costs, is the government going to fund this initiative? Another “loan” to be paid back to the U.N.? What are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals? This news article is chock full of holes … Not impressed.

  4. A word of caution my foot. You obviously do not understand the issue at hand. You should keep quiet. Yours was a silly, irrelevant comment.
