NC State SDG Initiative

Beginning during the Fall 2021 Semester, NC State will launch a campus programming initiative focused around the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This initiative, scheduled to last through the 2021-22 and 2022-23 academic years, will feature a wide array of programs each semester focused around a cluster of SDGs. The purpose of the SDG Campus Programming Initiative is to educate students at NC State as to what the SDGs are, why they are a blueprint for peace and prosperity in the world, and inspire them to take action in support of the goals on their campuses and in their local community.

Fall 2022: Equity and Equal Opportunity

17 Goals for People, for Planet

The Sustainable Development Goals are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere. The 17 Goals were adopted by all UN Member States in 2015, as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which set out a 15-year plan to achieve the Goals.

Today, progress is being made in many places, but, overall, action to meet the Goals is not yet advancing at the speed or scale required. 2020 needs to usher in a decade of ambitious action to deliver the Goals by 2030.

Future Thematic Clusters

Get Involved

SDG@3 Discussions

Learn about a different UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) at each session and how you can be involved. The SDGs offer goals for the world to better the lives of everyone on the planet.

The Discussion Series will feature a faculty member, student group representative, and practitioner from the community briefly sharing what they are doing to make a difference related to the Global Goal. Each session will include time for table discussion and conclude with ways you can connect.
