Sustainable Development Goals 

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.

Inspired by the UN SDGs, in the long term we, in the frame of the Aurora European University Alliance, will pioneer new standards for:

  • education
  • research
  • campus - internal organization
  • service to society
  • (external) collaboration

Lecture Series Sustainable Development Goals

Dear participants of the lecture series on Sustainable Development Goals!

Due to the current COVID situation respectively in order to further reduce physical attendance and thus social contacts on site, we decided with a heavy heart to discontinue the livestream of the lecture series.

For all those who take part as guests, the individual appointments are still recorded; usually the recordings can be accessed on the next day.

There are no changes for registered students due to the setting of the live stream, especially since they take part in the individual appointments as part of the corresponding OLAT course (virtual classroom).

Stay healthy!

Your team of the lecture series on Sustainable Development Goals
