The 2030 Agenda is the United Nations framework for sustainable development signed by the world’s nations to end extreme poverty, reduce inequalities, solve the climate crisis, promote peace and equity and much more. Lund University aspires to be a part of the sustainable solution and has therefore initiated a graduate school focusing on societal challenges and the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development.
To achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, research has several important roles: to identify challenges and conflicting objectives, contribute with new solutions, generate dialogue and learning between different societal stakeholders and to critically analyse the goals.
Vision of the Agenda 2030 Graduate School at Lund University
a world-class, interdisciplinary and innovative graduate school that
- educates world-leading scientists who can address the multiple challenges inherent in the Sustainable Development Goals and
- contributes to advancing the sustainability research and knowledge of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
