The Institute for Conscious Global Change (ICGC) is a 501c3 NGO in Special Consultative Status with ECOSOC whose primary activity is the Millennium Earth Project (MEP) which uses Geographic Information Systems, GeoDesign, Global Navigation Satellite Systems like Global Positioning System and other Earth Observation technologies. ICGC was founded on the idea that poverty in all its forms can be mitigated by gathering extensive data to design each city, town, and village to reflect the real-time issues. By activating SDG#17: ‘Means of Implementation’ and looking at all 17 SDGs together holistically as the 2030 Agenda was designed, government, stakeholders and citizens working together in partnership can create the future they want. The goal is to address these issues by designing a world in which everyone has access to sufficient food, adequate shelter, safety, good governance, and proper education and good health. All countries could accomplish this GeoDesign approach in the next 3-5 years, to virtually develop especially each developing and least developed country. This would make great headways toward their development and significant next steps realizing the successful implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
