Sustainable Development Goals & The Biggest Mini Forest

The sustainable development goals that The Biggest Mini Forest can address

At the heart of the Biggest Mini Forest project lies a commitment to creating positive and lasting impacts aligned with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):

No Poverty (Goal 1):

By promoting food sovereignty, we contribute to lifting communities out of poverty.

Zero Hunger (Goal 2):

Creating community based sustainable sources of food through Mini Food Forests helps eliminate hunger.

Good Health and Well-being (Goal 3):

The connection to nature, combined with nutritious yields and community inclusion, promotes overall well-being and health.

Gender Equality (Goal 5):

Uniting both genders in the creation of Mini Food Forests promotes gender equality.

Clean Water and Sanitation (Goal 6):

Regenerative agriculture systems, like Mini Food Forests, contribute to water retention in the ground, reducing irrigation needs, and improving overall water management.

Decent Work and Economic Growth (Goal 8):

The implementation of Mini Food Forests on a larger scale can create jobs, support local economies, and contribute to economic growth.

Reduce Inequalities (Goal 10):

Mini Forests included in impoverished communities reduce inequalities in access to food, clean water, and income generation.

Sustainable Cities and Communities (Goal 11):

Mini Forests in urban and rural areas contribute to cleaner air, CO2 retention, temperature reduction, and local food production.

Responsible Consumption and Production (Goal 12):

Local sourcing of food from Mini Food Forests promotes responsible consumption and production.

Climate Action (Goal 13):

Mini Forests play a crucial role in CO2 sequestration, water management, biodiversity support, and climate resilience. They also promote local production and consumption and do not require chemical fertilizers or pesticides, which is also a plus when considering climate action.

Life on Land (Goal 15):

Biodiversity conservation, soil regeneration, and ecosystem restoration contribute to this goal.

Partnerships for the Goals (Goal 17):

Our community-building initiatives foster collaboration for a sustainable future.

“Start Mini, Go Big” - Join us in weaving a tapestry of change for a better and more sustainable world.

The Biggest Mini Forest is part of a network of Mini Forests that are being created by different organisations in Portugal, all working towards different sustainable development goals.
