The global goal "Life on land" (goal 15) is now being highlighted at the Biomedical Library.

Life on land (goal 15)

We are now raising awareness of the goal 15 and researchers, research projects and subject areas of the library that are related to this goal.

The aim of goal 15 aims is to “Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss”.

Exhibitions at Social Sciences and Economics Library

Exhibitions are also ongoing at other libraries:

The Economics Library is showcasing "Climate Action" (goal 13).

The Social Sciences Library is displaying “Peace and Justice Strong Institutions” (goal 16), and “Substantially Reduce Corruption and Bribery” (objective 16.5).

Global goals for sustainable development

At the UN summit in autumn 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 global goals for sustainable development. The countries of the world have committed to work to achieve four amazing things by 2030:

  • Abolishing extreme poverty
  • To reduce inequalities
  • To solve the climate crisis
  • To promote peace and justice

With its 17 goals and 169 sub-goals, Agenda 2030 is the most ambitious agreement on sustainable development that world leaders have ever adopted. The global goals are integrated and indivisible, balancing the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental. Everyone is needed!

The global goals unite the countries of the world through a universal agenda and require that all countries - both rich and poor - act both nationally and globally in order to achieve these goals by 2030. It is not the UN that is responsible for the implementation of the goals, but each country. In Sweden, all government ministers have a responsibility for implementation, but the agenda requires that business, academia, civil society and private individuals also become involved.
