U.N. Sustainable Development Goals
As well as improving sustainability within King's College London, we are also concerned about the wider social and economic impacts the university has on the world. As such, we are focusing on King’s contribution to achieving the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These seventeen goals have been agreed by world leaders, after extended consultation with a host of people and organisations, to drive the global agenda to create a better world through to 2030. King’s College London is seeking to align its work against the SDGs to support the global effort to make a better world by 2030, and to publicise the university’s widespread contribution to society in London, in the UK, and the world at large.
The Sustainability Team is currently carrying out a baseline survey to identify King’s contribution to the achievement of the SDGs through the research and teaching carried out at the university, as well as additional projects run by students and staff and the university as a whole to effect change both within campus and in the outside world.
Please get in touch if you are interested in our work, with partnership being the 17th goal.
