7 Innovative Ways American Universities Are Driving Progress on the SDGS

External News Details

SDG stands for Sustainable Development Goals, part of the United Nations' 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, an ambitious plan to have all its member nations come up with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth — all while tackling climate change and working to preserve oceans and forests. The United Nations Foundation notes that Georgia Tech began to roll out its sustainability programming as part of its 10-year strategic plan in fall 2020, coinciding with the Covid-19 pandemic, the global conversation around climate action, and a spotlight on the fight for racial justice. Also, Georgia Tech President Angel Cabrera (a School of Psychology alumnus) co-founded and chairs the University Global Coalition (UGC), a group of international universities that have invested in supporting the SDGs through research, education, and service.
