Does your government spend enough money on deaf people? You can use the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to advocate with your government. For example, you can explain that the right programs for deaf people can help them meet the SDGs. But what are the SDGs? And how do they affect deaf people? Learn about the SDGs via International Sign in this video. The video also has captions in English.

Meanwhile, this video is the first in a series of videos about the SDGs in international sign. The World Federation of the Deaf (WFD) produced these videos. Each video in WFD’s series explains one of the 17 SDGs. The videos also explain a few goals that talk about people with disabilities. 

No transcript for the videos is available. Deafblind and blind people who need an accessible resource can instead try this guide on the SDGs and how they help deaf and disability rights. The guide is also a helpful introduction for other people.

You also can explore other resources on the SDGs.
