Sustainable Development Goals
Protecting the Planet and Ensuring Prosperity for All
Many initiatives and activities at Purchase College advance the goals of protecting the planet and ensuring prosperity for all, as defined by the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
In 2015, a global delegations of experts developed, debated and introduced the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be adopted by the United Nations and its 193 member countries. The 17 goals emerged from rigorous research into global conditions and trends.
They are at the forefront of international development conversations, initiatives, and require innovative research collaborations to create new possibilities and a better future for a more sustainable world.
