How It All Began...


It was a historic moment when, in September 2015, the international community agreed on 17 goals for sustainable development. Since we heard of them, we have been excited about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). But instead of writing about the things that went wrong in the world, we wanted to tell the positive stories. The idea of a magazine was born! seventeen goals Magazin tells inspiring stories of change and motivates people to take action.

In case you have missed it, you will find a digital browser to browse through the magazines here. Also, it is included in the ZEIT and the TAGESSPIEGEL at regular intervals. And for even more good news, you are welcome to subscribe to our newsletter published 4 times a year.

Get to know our team members; who, together with many freelance journalists, make our magazine possible.
