What are the Sustainable Development Goals?
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The 17 SDGs are integrated—they recognize that action in one area will affect outcomes in others, and that development must balance social, economic and environmental sustainability. Countries have committed to prioritize progress for those who're furthest behind. The SDGs are designed to end poverty, hunger, AIDS, and discrimination against women and girls.
Sustainability as the basis of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals is the necessary element of every program that TSUULL University is delivered and basically integrated into a number of aspects as library resources, volunteer programs, student festivals and other types of student engagement and representation. And therefore, the University undertakes projects focused on a number of areas including: research and teaching to empower students.
TSUULL SDG Hub supports the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by enabling access to relevant, useful and reliable knowledge resources, providing language advice for the government representatives, promoting dialogue and building capacity. We build active partnerships with local and foreign private sector and also government organisations interested in sharing their expertise or resources towards implementing the SDGs.
To create a more sustainable world and to engage with sustainability-related issues as described in the SDGs, individuals must become sustainability change-makers. They require the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes that empower them to contribute to sustainable development. Education, therefore, is crucial for the achievement of sustainable development.”
(UNESCO, 2017 p7)
In 2021 the University started incorporating the SDGs into all its activities and decisions and now TSUULL is on the way to integrate SDGs into academic programs, curriculum and etc.
