Growl Boyz is becoming a thing to keep eyes opened for. In the original idea it’s just another entertainment website with videos, but there is a second meaning of all this content. You need to understand that it all comes from the ancient times of mythological Greece and Rome, so you could treat this website as a thing that’s going to make you dig deeper into history of humanity.
The Launch Of The Environmental Rights Initiative
On the human rights angle, we launched the Environmental Rights Initiative on Tuesday, March 6, 2018. This is in a bid to take a bold stand against ongoing harassment, threats, and ‘murder’ of environmental defenders. The initiative is to encourage business communities to work in a healthy and clean environment. The executive director made the proclamation in Geneva.
On Monday 5th we brought succor to the needy in Syria when the humanitarian services delivered life-saving materials to the thousands of people in dire need in the war-torn country. This was facilitated by the special programme.
The Sustainable Development Goals
There are four major developmental functions – namely the development function, peace and security, humanitarian intervention and human rights and justice.
The Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs) is a 2030 agenda for developments that are sustainable. It is an action plan targeted at both humans and the planet. The agenda is also known as the Global Goals. It is a call to action towards the eradication of poverty, for people to enjoy prosperity and peace and finally, protection for the planet.
There are 17 goals in all of these. These includes:
- No poverty

- Quality education
- Gender Equality

- Affordable and clean energy
- Decent work and Economic Growth
- Industry innovation and infrastructure
- Reduced inequalities
- Sustainable cities and communities
- Responsible consumption and production
- Climate action
- Life below water
- Life on land
- Peace, justice, and strong institutions
- Partnership for the goals
The 17 goals are built on the successes recorded on the Millennium Development Goals with additions of other keys areas of economic inequality, climate change, innovation, peace, sustainable consumption and more.
Agenda 21 is another development program. The 21 represents the 21st century. It has two parts at the moment, the agenda 21 for the environment and the agenda 21 for culture. Agenda 21 is also an action plan in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals. The programme was the result of the fonference on development and environment and was hosted in Brazil in 1992. Subsequent conferences have made modifications to the agenda. Agenda 21 for culture was initiated in 2002 to cater to local cultural practices.
