Social media Newsfeeds in our modern world often feel like one disheartening headline after another. Violence and injustice seem to invade every corner of our world, from developing regions and major urban centers thousands of miles away, to the house just down the road.
The goal to reduce global violence is daunting, but not unattainable. In fact, objective number 16 on the United Nations' list of Sustainable Development Goals is to create "peace, justice, and strong institutions" around the world. While there is still a long road ahead, organizations from all over the globe and across the spectrum of industry are chipping in to do their part. UBS, for example, has upped its focus on impact investing, as well as unveiled a Global Visionary program to highlight entrepreneurs making progress on the UN's SDGs.
