Goal #11: Sustainable Cities & Communities

Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

myTurn.com is a pivotal force in the global movement towards achieving Goal #11. Here’s how we’re making a difference:

  1. Global Presence: With Libraries of Things powered by myTurn.com in over 22 countries worldwide, we’re not just a platform but a global phenomenon. Our support has catalyzed an almost tenfold growth in these libraries in the past five years, and our vision is set on a 100-fold expansion in the upcoming five years.
  2. Promoting Sustainability: These libraries champion the ethos of sustainability. Instead of perpetuating a culture of constant buying, they encourage sharing, thereby reducing the consumption of durable goods. This not only conserves resources but also reduces waste, making cities more sustainable.
  3. Fostering Inclusivity: At the core of these libraries is the principle of inclusivity. They are open to all, ensuring that every community member, irrespective of their socio-economic background, has access to essential goods. This democratization of access is a step towards more inclusive urban spaces.
  4. Building Resilience: Beyond sustainability and inclusivity, these libraries play a crucial role in fortifying communities. They foster community bonding, creating stronger, more connected neighborhoods. Moreover, by increasing access to vital tools and equipment, they ensure communities are better equipped to face and recover from adversities and disasters.

With myTurn.com at the helm, cities around the world are evolving into spaces that are not just sustainable and inclusive but also safe and resilient. We’re not just envisioning a better future; we’re actively building it.
