SDU’s Sustainable Development Goals Forum

SDU’s Sustainable Development Goals Forum

2,116 employees and students vote on 12 initiatives proposed by students and staff members jointly across research, educations and Central Administration.

SDU’s Sustainable Development Goals Forum is SDU’s community for staff members and students. The main events in the forum consist of two annual joint events. The first event was SDU’s Sustainable Development Goals Forum’s kick-off event, which was held on 24 September. 300 staff members and students participated in an open discussion and joint development of ideas. 2,116 staff members and students then voted on 12 proposals for initiatives that SDU should continue to work on.

Debates, presentations and networking in the academic environment among researchers, programmes, students and staff members provide the foundation for developing ideas and qualifying specific initiatives in SDU’s work on the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals – prior to, during and after the annual joint events. In the long term, SDU will also invite representatives from the business world, the public sector and other operators to inspire new ideas and actions.

The next event will take place on 2 April 2020. Further details will follow.
