This Personal View supports SDG 3 and 10 by explaining how children's health outcomes in the USA could be improved by adhering to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child - ie, adopt policies that promote children's rights and wellbeing. This would help to address the comparatively poor health outcomes of children in the USA despite the high per-capita health spending.
Climate change is driving the need for cool spaces, which currently relies largely on mechanical air conditioning that consumes power and contributes to emissions. This article examines how to create a passive cooling system with good ventilation using no mechanical equipment, achieving sub-ambient temperature cooling that could be extended to larger homes and structures. As such, it supports SDGs 3 (ensuring access to cool livable spaces), SDG 9 (more sustainable infrastructure to cool homes), and SDG 13 (reducing the need for traditional air conditioning).
The chapter advances Goals 5 and 10 by educating mental health providers on how to provide culturally sensitive care to all women.

The authors developed an effective strategy for monitoring the hormone levels in a challenging natural environment.
As the upcoming generation occupies a larger portion of the workforce, issues around the topic of diversity will only continue to grow in importance. Not only is Generation Z more racially and ethnically diverse than previous generations, but members of this generation are also more likely to expect employers to actively work toward cultivating diversity in the workplace. The recent DIAL Global Diversity Review, co-sponsored by XpertHR, presents comprehensive data on the practices being used to promote diversity in the workplace today. This report addresses various facets of diversity from gender and ethnicity to socioeconomic status and parenthood, promoting SDGs 5, 8 and 10.
