Cultural Resilience

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. Achieving the SDGs will require all cultural groups to be included in the conversation and have the opportunity to express their individual and collective needs. One hurdle is that most people are not aware of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and are absent due to a lack of awareness. Descendants of the diaspora from African, Caribbean, Brazilian, and Hispanic countries are not fully participating on the grassroots level because the information has not impacted them.

EEIC will bring awareness to the SDGs communities by delivering the message in the community's language and culturally acceptable mediums. By "speaking their language" and "meeting them where they are," we will make the information relatable and available, highlighting how they are affected and how we could work with them for maximum efficiency.

Diversity in cultures helps build a more robust ecosystem, just as biodiversity in our natural ecosystem strengthens the ecosystem. Therefore, embracing and highlighting the cultural contribution, knowledge, ideas, innovation, and figuring out how to express this within the sustainable is a clear pathway to ensure financial wellness for all people to enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.
