2015 presents a historic and unprecedented opportunity to bring the countries and citizens of the world together to decide and embark on new paths to improve the lives of people everywhere. These decisions will determine the global course of action to end poverty, promote prosperity and well-being for all, protect the environment and address climate change.
In 2015, countries will adopt a new sustainable development agenda and a new global agreement on climate change. The actions taken in 2015 are expected to result in new sustainable development goalsthat build on the eight Millennium Development Goals.

as we transition from The Millenium Development Goals.
We The People
Celebrities, professors and members of the general public unite to welcome in a new era of Sustainability: The Global Goals.
BrixFest has now positioned itself as one of South Devon's premier events, and we're committed to ensuring our recent success doesn't come at the cost to the rest of the Earth!
Brixham itself is no stranger to the issues surrounding Sustainability (primarily our fishing industry and the recent controversy surrounding quotas), but we're taking things in a slightly different direction.
What happens when the festival ends and all the generated-rubbish is left over? When the flyers and programmes we've had printed are thrown away? How can we ensure all visitors get a better experience while remaining considerate and respectful of our beautiful town and the world we live in?
The answers aren't simple, but they are important. We're making three of our own pledges, which all relate to at least one of the 'Global Goals', in an effort to both spread awareness of the promises/campaign and help to make a difference.
