The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

There is increasing awareness of the critical role that universities play in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  Universities through their teaching and learning, research organisational governance, culture, operations and external leadership can play a lead role in the implementation of the SDGs.  At NUI Galway, we recognise the important role that universities play in advancing the SDG agenda and using our Learn-Live-Lead model we are addressing sustainability from environmental, social and economic perspectives.  We demonstrates leadership in the achievement of the SDGs by promoting sustainability scholarship, social justice, human rights and global citizenship as graduate and staff attributes; by embedding sustainability in operations and investments and by building sustainable partnerships with communities.
