United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development

On September 25th 2015, 193 world leaders committed to 17 Global Goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years:

  • End extreme poverty
  • Fight inequality & injustice
  • Fix climate change

The Global Goals for sustainable development could get these things done. In all countries. For all people.




Collectively, the Global Goals are about an evolution in human consciousness. This is central to the mission and vision of Barrett Values Centre®. We support leaders in building values-driven organisations, which in turn contributes to the creation of a values-driven society. Another vital aspect of our vision and service is to be a global resource for the evolution of human consciousness. We know that we can’t do this alone! Over the past 18 years, we have been busy building a worldwide network of change agents in over 90 countries who are doing the coaching, consulting and development work on the ground.

#GlobalGoals Special Edition Personal Values Assessment

To help celebrate the launch and spread the word, Barrett Values Centre has created a special edition Personal Values Assessment with the Global Goals logo and links. Ultimately, the goals are about a transformation in human values. When we understand what is inside, we can take action from a place of greater consciousness. Just as the Global Goals 'Tell Everyone' campaign has the intention to reach all seven billion people in the coming months, we are serious about our desire to offer the PVA to everyone on earth so they can explore their own values, priorities and motivations.


Delivering the UN Global Goals: The Consciousness Perspective

In this paper, Richard Barrett shows how the Global Goals for sustainable development are linked to the evolutionary stages of consciousness and psychological growth. He uses this framework to suggest an order in which the goals can be delivered, in order to maximise the possibility for successful implementation and show why some goals are easier to achieve than others. If we start with the simpler goals, we can build the relationships, systems and mind-sets that make the more difficult goals possible.
