ILSC joins global organizations in participating in the work of the United Nations and its support of the Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations and Sustainable Development Goals

The UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was adopted unanimously by 193 nations at a summit in New York in September 2015.

“The seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are our shared vision of humanity and a social contract between the world’s leaders and the people.”

– UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

The 17 goals and 169 targets seek to wipe out poverty, fight inequality and tackle climate change over the next 15 years. They “are a to-do list for people and the planet, and a blueprint for success.” Broad and ambitious in scope, the Agenda addresses the three dimensions of sustainable development — social, economic and environmental — as well as important aspects related to peace, justice, health and well-being, and effective institutions.

How ILSC collaborates

From ILSC’s founding, our team has recognized that health challenges are global. However, approaches to meeting these challenges may be local, national, regional, or international. Our team firmly believes in the benefit of working together with organizations of all sizes and at every level to collaborate on advancing shared goals.

Global Health Collaboration

The Global Health Collaboration was founded by ILSC to develop conferences and programs for the public that support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Global Health Collaboration conferences have included:

  • Advancing UN Sustainable Development Goal 3 (Good Health & Well-being)
  • Climate Change and Its Impact on Children’s Health
  • Sustainable Development Healthcare Delivery: Nutraceuticals & Products
  • Antibiotic Resistance and Obsolescence: Meeting the Major Disease Challenge for Post-2015

Council of Organizations (COO)

The Council of Organizations (COO) is a multidisciplinary federation of non-government organizations to advance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, more particular in such areas as education, social justice, labor, sustainable development, energy & climate, human rights, health and gender equality. The Council of Organizations was founded by Eleanor Roosevelt in 1947, shortly after the founding of the United Nations in 1945.

The COO works closely with the United Nations Association of the United States of America, the United Nations, WHO, international organizations, public and private sector stakeholders to develop effective collaborative activities.

ILSC is a member of the Council of Organizations for many years and members of ILSC serve in various organizational capacities.

Life ScienceTherapeutics

ILSC global connections and health care initiatives through the International Conferences on Mechanisms of Action of Nutraceuticals (ICMAN), a program of ILSC. For millennia, people worldwide have used local natural products for preventive or therapeutic care. ICMAN has presented six international conferences since 2001, in Croatia, Austria, U.S.A., Israel, Australia and Scotland.

The conferences brought together leading researchers, academics, medical practitioners, industry professionals and government officials. They reviewed advances dealing with chronic conditions and health/wellness issues in which nutraceuticals (natural compounds and colloids) can play a therapeutic part. The approach is oriented to science-based and tested innovations and to having participants discuss and collaborate on a cross-disciplinary basis.
