Through a series of photographs collected and distributed in a single publication, Internet users take up a theory according to which the great world leaders would unite in order to form global governance.
In these images, we see heads of state such as Emmanuel Macron, but also public figures such as Bill Gates or Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the current boss of the WHO. What do they have in common? A multicolored brooch, pinned to their jacket.
"Here are some photos where we see WHO President Macron, Bill Gates and all other world leaders wearing this Global Goals for Global Governance pin," the publication said. In comments, some explicitly refer to the "new world order", which has been "talked about for a long time". Behind this concept of "new world order", Wikipedia recalls, is "a formula used to designate several conspiracy theories. They denounce a project of planetary domination, through supposedly democratic institutions, non-governmental institutions or even totalitarian regimes. . "
A United Nations program
The photos collected here are not subject to editing. They were taken at events organized by the United Nations in recent years, and the pins worn by the various public figures presented here are identical. What are they referring to? The "Sustainable Development Goals", name given to a series of objectives defined by the UN and which must, as the international organization indicates, respond to "the urgent environmental, political and economic challenges facing our world" .
The UN specifies on its website that "the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were born during the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro in 2012". They must be understood "as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030". In order to achieve this, the involvement of "everyone is necessary", believes the UN: "The creativity, know-how, technology and financial resources of all of society are necessary to achieve these goals in all. the contexts ".
Among the 17 objectives "adopted at the UN General Assembly in September 2015 and [...] entered into force on January 1, 2016", we find gender equality, the end of poverty and the eradication of hunger throughout the world. Ambitions which echo those displayed by the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation, and which have prompted the latter to lend its support. A program called "Goalkeepers" has thus been set up to support players in action today, with annual meetings punctuated by conferences and presentations. It is in this context that we could see Bill Gates wearing the colorful badge symbolizing the 17 objectives and which can be found for sale on a United Nations site. In 2018, among the heads of state who responded to the invitation of the Gates Foundation, we find in particular a certain Emmanuel Macron. His speech, in English, is still available online.
These "Sustainable Development Goals", often called "Global Goals", do not therefore constitute a form of secret or underground organization. This is a program presented in full transparency, which the United Nations indicates moreover that it is "not legally binding" for States, although the latter are strongly encouraged to make efforts to achieve this. to significant results.
While Internet users see it as the manifestation of world governance and comment on the establishment of a "new world order", it should be noted that this program, like many others initiated by the UN, aims to coordinate development policies at the international level. The colorful brooch worn by personalities like Emmanuel Macron appears here as the symbol of a commitment to the achievement of the 17 objectives defined in 2012.
