Sustainable Development Goals Projects
“A successful sustainable development agenda requires partnerships between governments, the private sector and civil society. These inclusive partnerships built upon principles and values, a shared vision, and shared goals that place people and the planet at the centre, are needed at the global, regional, national and local level.”
This description of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) certainly includes universities, which can contribute to the goals through research and education in a wide array of disciplines that can potentially contribute to a better future. It is essential that the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals rests on knowledge, new research, innovation and citizens who are empowered by critical thinking. The Sustainable Development Goals clearly need strong societal actors, like universities, to ensure their success.
The University of Pavia is working actively, organizing seminars and lessons, and managing projects for the achievement of the United SDGs.
