Here I will be briefly reviewing this site. It provides links to pages which provide an explanation and importance of each of the goals. Each one of these pages allows the reader to click and obtain the targets for the goal described on the page, as well as inspirational news bites titled Goals in Action. Since some of the news items address several goals, the same bite is repeated across several goal pages. The web site is a good place to start reading about this important and ambitious UN agenda and could be used at secondary school and general introductory university levels. The 2016 and 2017 Sustainable Development Goals Reports are publicly available at the time of writing this review (August 2018).
