The International Rescue Committee and UNIT9 Films Director Cole Paviour have partnered with Project Everyone and Richard Curtis—renowned filmmaker and advocate for the sustainable development goals set by the United Nations—to create a short film that explains how world leaders can turn the tables on extreme poverty, injustice and climate change.

In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals, as referenced by the 17 tables in the film, for a better world by 2030. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone.
