#17Goals17Weeks

In 2015, the UN and its member states adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Umeå School of Business, Economics and Statistics, was during the fall semester presenting one goal per week for 17 weeks to highlight the goals and to show some of what USBE are doing within education, research and collaborations to achieve the agenda.

The 17 sustainable development goals are the lighthouse that directs us to better future. Everyone can contribute, and of course also a sustainability-oriented business school!

You can now find all posts of the campaign compiled below. Even though the fall semester of 2018 has passed will our work continue. Be a part of the campaign, comment the posts, suggest collaborations and share the message! Together we can make a difference!
