Ordinarily, an email from someone I’ve never met, asking for answers to many difficult questions, would end up pretty far down on my over-packed list of things to do.
But something in the genuine care and applied intelligence of her questions made me feel compelled to start writing answers. Not “the” answers, because nobody has those. But my answers.
These were questions, I realized, that I also needed to be asking myself, and that many of us need to be thinking about.
Questions like: “How do we muster the will, from top to bottom, to make the leaps that achieving the SDGs demand?”
So here are my answers to Jackie McMakin’s wonderful questions. I hope they help you think about how you would answer these questions for yourself.
