Building a World in Common

Our Fields of Action

Building a fairer and more sustainable world – a world in common that leaves no one behind – implies six major transitions, both here and over there, in the social, energy, territorial, digital, civic and economic spheres. And achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) depends on succeeding in these transitions. To do so, we must respect the particularities of each country and the diversity of development choices, but at the same time intensify collective action, exchanges and partnerships in order to build solutions together that benefit all.
