Samsung has announced that the Galaxy Community has raised a whopping $1 million to support Global Goals, the universal platform by the United Nations (UN) that aims to create a better world by 2030. The South Korean firm has been a United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) partner for one year.
This year, the United Nations celebrates its 75th anniversary and will kick off the ‘Decade of Action’ plan to create a better world by the end of this decade. World leaders will meet virtually for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic, facing an unprecedented challenge to meet Global Goals for the next ten years. Samsung says that as a global tech leader, it knows that it has the responsibility to help the world move forward.
Samsung’s partnership with UNDP has allowed the company to transform the Galaxy smartphone into a platform through its Global Goals app and help Galaxy users take small steps and contribute towards a cleaner tomorrow. The funds generated by the Galaxy community will be used in improving education, gender equality, nutrition, water sanitization, and to combat climate change.
