Global Goals to Transform Our World by 2030

In September 2015, all United Nations member states signed up to the Agenda 2030 and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a set of solutions for the biggest problems the world faces. Some of the key areas where we must take actions are climate, poverty, inequality and human rights.

In the 75 years, since the United Nations was founded, the human race has never had to face a set of challenges that we do right now. Agenda 2030 is the most ambitious agreement for sustainable development that world leaders has ever made. It integrates all 3 aspects of sustainable development: social, economic and environmental. Universities have an important role in the sustainable development through education, research, innovation and leadership.

Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs)

17 Goals to Transform Our World

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. The 17 Goals in turn hold 169 targets and 230 indicators.

Higher Education Impact ranking 2021

Times Higher Education (THE) Impact ranking 2021 aims to measure how Higher Education Institutions contribute to the Agenda 2030 and the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). KI participated in the Times Higher Education Impact ranking 2021 in order to identify any strengths and weaknesses at the university and to use the work process itself as a learning process.

Collaboration to achieve the goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can only be realised with strong partnerships and cooperation. A successful development agenda requires inclusive partnerships — at the global, national and local levels — built upon principles and values, and upon a shared vision and shared goals placing people and the planet at the centre (UN, 2021).
