Intro #17Goals17Weeks

Umeå School of Business, Economics and Statistics (USBE)


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

We, Umeå School of Business, Economics and Statistics, will during the fall semester present 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!

Join us in this initiative towards the 17 goals!

  • Tell us what you think about our work!
  • How can we do better?
  • Spread the knowledge of the goals!
  • What do you do? Tell us your story!

The initiative will be presented in USBE's pages on Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter. On any of those pages you can comment on our work but also present your own activities.
