KNOW YOUR RIGHTS | CONNAISSEZ VOS DROITS

Our Drive

Many of the 17 SDGs have links to the right to freedom of expression and access to information. See the full list here and/or here.

SDG 16 is the most relevant, as it aims to “promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels”.

SDG 16 includes 10 targets. SDG 16.10’s goal is “to ensure public access to information and protect fundamental freedoms, in accordance with national legislation and international agreements”.
