Taking Action

 

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG´s) are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere. The 17 Goals were adopted by all UN Member States in 2015, as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which set out a 15-year plan to achieve the Goals. 

TAKING ACTION provides a dialogue among academicians, students and community members to address a respective goal, its relevance, implementation, and promotion. Click here to find out other ways to take action.
