SDGs and Sustainability

Sustainable Development Goals

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was adopted by the United Nations. All 193 member states of the United Nations – and therefore Austria – are committed to working towards the implementation of the 2030 Agenda with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at regional, national, and international level. Therefore, this transformation of our world in becoming an economic, social, and ecological sustainable society is understood as the core element.

Danube University Krems contributes to the project UniNEtZ (Universitäten und Nachhaltige EntwicklungsZiele) of the Alliance of Sustainable Universities in Austria. The project UniNEtZ has set out to create a paper for the Austrian government, which comprises a catalogue to identify and evaluate future-oriented possibilities of action in regards of the implementation of the 17 sustainable developments goals adopted by the Council of Ministers. At the same time, the country’s main target is to implement sustainable development in Austria i.a. throughout an improved interdisciplinary network, and strengthened cooperation between universities as well as in identifying the requirement of research and options for action. Danube University Krems will mainly deliver its contribution to the following topics:
