Headline: Science Platform Sustainability 2030

Together with the German Committee Future Earth and SDSN Germany, the IASS is one of the organising institutions of the Science Platform Sustainability 2030, which supports the German Government’s Sustainable Development Strategy as well as the sustainable development goals (SDGs) of the global 2030 Agenda. The platform will lend the Sustainable Development Goals a stronger presence within the German science landscape and promote constructive dialogues between academia and policymakers. The IASS hosts the secretariat of the SDG Platform and plays a leading role in its thematic development and coordination.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Dossier

An important crossroads: at the end of September the UN member states voted on a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in order to initiate a global transformation towards sustainability. The Sustainable Development Goals are more extensive than their precursor, the eight Millennium Development Goals, which have often been criticised for not giving enough attention to the ecological dimensions of sustainability, or for considering it only in isolation. The primary goal remains the eradication of poverty.
