IULM and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

In September 2015, the Governments of the 193 UN member states adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Agenda sets out 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) comprising an integrated, universal action plan aimed at promoting peace, prosperity and sustainable development for our planet and its people.

Università IULM, including the entire university community, is committed to meeting this urgent call to action and, as already indicated in the University Strategic Plan 2022-2024 “Contributing to social participation and continuous development means for IULM University to be able to speak also to its local region and civil society - without ever forgetting the specificities of the academic institution. The wide-ranging dissemination, applied research, and “third mission” activities carried out by IULM lecturers are flanked by university projects open to all citizens (from IULM for the City to the ‘Fondamenta’ project), precisely as a contribution to cultural and civil progress.
In short, IULM aims to confirm and strengthen its vocation as a “laboratory of ideas” capable of promoting initiatives to foster the culture of inclusion and sustainability and make a concrete contribution to the affirmation of a complete cultural democracy.”

In this active role in creating an enlightened generation of leaders for tomorrow’s society, in developing transformational knowledge and changing contemporary cultural paradigms, IULM is implementing a series of good practices, measures, programs and activities. The university is in fact committed on the one hand to implementing meaningful education around the SDGs across the full curriculum of its academic offer for its students; and on the other hand to expanding the knowledge on the SDGs to the general public. These innovative initiatives in realizing the SDGs are aimed not only at our community, but in having an impact that extends beyond the campus and to the society, citizens and stakeholders that surround us.
