SDG's and Graduate Attributes

Developing your attributes and values while at university supports you to become an effective global citizen who can effectively contribute to achieving sustainable development goals and become an agent of change. As citizens of the world, we are all responsible for SDG’s and must reflect on what the goals are, what our values and attributes are, and how we can individually contribute to achieving Global Goals. 

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.



This learning contect aims to support you in increasing your understanding of each SDG and understand what activities you can participate in that will help you to contribute to achieving them. We will also signpost which core attributes and values relate most strongly to each SDG and provide links to learning content that can help you develop them further.
