Sustainable Development Goals

On 1 January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by world leaders in September 2015 at an historic UN Summit, officially came into force. Over the next 15 years, with these new goals that universally apply to all, countries will mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change. However, this responsibility cannot only be relegated to governments and businesses.

 

CBS takes an active role in addressing the SDGs. Examples of this are to be found in our newest UN PRME Report on page 59: http://www.unprme.org/reports/cbsprme.pdf

Sulitest       

Sulitest is one of our collaborating activities with the PRME Nordic Chapter. Sulitest is a self-evaluation tool with the aim of creating awareness and increasing knowledge of global issues and sustainable development. It has the ambitious vision “to develop Sustainability Literacy worldwide and empower engaged and committed global citizen to make informed and responsible decisions, and collectively build a sustainable future” It was created after the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio + 20) and designed to contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The CBS PRME office has just recently started working with the Sulitest, however, we aim to apply the test to all new bachelor students at their first day at CBS.

Student Engagement Initiative

Educational institutions hold a great deal of responsibility. Universities such as CBS are responsible for making the goals relevant and inspiring for the next generation workforce. This is an inevitable step, if the goals are to be reached within the next 15 years, which is why CBS-PRME has joined forced with several student organizations to celebrate the SDGs with a large on-campus event. Here, Flagship students will host open activities demonstrating how the goals are relevant, inspiring and make up fertile ground for business innovation today. The aim of the event is to engage the leaders of tomorrow in this universal agenda, and to inspire others educational institutions to follow suit. Surely, this will bring an important step closer to a world without pressing issues of poverty, inequalities and climate change, as envisioned by the Sustainable Development Goals.
