Many of the UN Sustainable Development Goals are aligned with our work at Safecast…

Goal 3: Good Health and Well-being
Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.
By helping people get access to reliable, open data about their environments, Safecast is helping people make educated decisions about their health and well-being.

Goal 4: Quality Education
Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
Safecast’s educational outreach programs and partnerships provide hands-on learning for primary and secondary students to gain skills in engineering and environmental topics that will support future job opportunities and entrepreneurship. Our open and free curriculum ensures that educators have access to affordable and relevant resources.

Goal 5: Gender Equality
To achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
Safecast’s global volunteer team is reflective of the demographics they serve. We are committed to encouraging and fostering a diverse and inclusive community.

Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation.
Open platforms build resiliency in both communities that lack government support and infrastructure and those with a high GDP. As leadership and budgets change, open, transparent, community-driven innovation, particularly with regards to measuring the environment and climate change, is essential to the continuity and longevity of a critical system. Safecast’s unbiased open platform is adopted by research institutions around the world and the data is endorsed as reliable and accurate.

Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities 
Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.
Safecast’s openly licensed data platform provides community stakeholders in towns and cities around the world full access to information that they can use to make informed lifestyle choices and influence local policy and legislation.

Goal 13: Climate Action
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.
Air Quality and particulate matter have been identified as significant health factors by the World Health Organization. Safecast is building a network of sensors to monitor PM1.0, PM2.5, PM 10 that is available for anyone to use for free with no licensing restrictions.

Goal 15: Life on Land
Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, combat desertification and halt biodiversity loss.
Safecast is committed to helping people better understand their environment which is interconnected with the ecosystems we share with other living organisms and nonliving objects.

Goal 17: Partnerships to Achieve the Goal
Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.
As an open project, Safecast proudly works with groups across the social and political spectrum and models how to globally scale the dissemination and sharing of information, knowledge, expertise, and technology through open standards.
