UN Sustainable Development Goals

the 17 sustainable development goals.

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) outlined by the United Nations are a systematic plan to build a better world for people and our planet by 2030.

Topic description

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by all United Nations Member States, are part of an interconnected strategy to build a better world for all people on our planet by 2030. Many challenges to achieving the sustainable development of our world are faced by people everywhere, regardless of political boundaries, so the efforts must be truly collaborative and involve partnerships across the globe. 

The projects listed below are curated under this umbrella because they relate to one or more SDG. While they may not necessarily be designed specifically around SDGs, the results and broader impacts of the projects may actually be closely related to them. Whether it is research that adds new knowledge to a specific SDG or community-focused work to build partnerships and capacity in developing regions, connecting your impacts to the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals can help move our world toward a brighter future.
