Actor Liam Neeson to play God in new advert

by Desmond Busteed

The SDGs follow, and expand on, the millennium development goals (MDGs), which were agreed by governments in 2000, and are due to expire at the end of this year.

"We want to try to make sure everyone on the planet knows about this to-do list for the planet", said project mastermind Richard Curtis, director behind Bridget Jones's diary.

"It will be an ad that everyone can understand...a shared common experience...I'm hoping that people will watch, laugh, share act."

According to the Guardian, the ad aims to spread the word about the goals to "seven billion people in seven days" and will be shown cinema goers in 30 countries with the help of the hashtag #wehaveaplan.

The Sustainable Development Goals are a new set of goals, targets and indicators that UN member states will be expected to use to frame their agendas and political policies over the next 15 years.

Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
