What is 'sustainable development' and why is it important?

Sustainable development is development which meets the needs of today while protecting people and planet, and which works toward a more inclusive and resilient place for future generations.

As the global challenges of our time continue to evolve, LJMU has committed to the United National 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
