Mapping Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’S) and teaching courses at Universität Innsbruck

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the associated 169 individual goals, which are at the heart of the United Nations Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, offer a new political framework worldwide to end poverty of all kinds, inequality to combat and counteract climate change.

Sustainable objectives are also anchored in the EU treaties and are included in cross-departmental key projects and initiatives such as the Aurora university network. However, they are also becoming increasingly important in the context of the development plan, the performance agreement and the target agreements.

In preparation for a stronger anchoring of the „sustainability“ at the University of Innsbruck, teaching data on the SDGs are collected across the board, starting with academic year 2020/2021.

For this reason, all course leaders are asked to use the descriptions of the SDGs to assess whether their course is related to or dealt with one, several or no SDG.

For a course, both single and multiple assignments are possible, but also a “non-assignment” (“cannot be assigned to an SDG”) is possible.

When assessing whether a course can be assigned to an SDG, in addition to the overview descriptions of the sustainability goals listed below, the information resulting from the Targets & Indicators can also be taken into account.

These can be accessed via external links after clicking on the respective SDG.
