SDG 8 - Decent work and economic growth

Economic growth has a range of benefits for the whole global community. We must make financial progress while ensuring the environment is not harmed, labour rights are protected and modern slavery and child abuse is ended. Nobody should be excluded from the benefits of innovation.

LJMU is working to promote sustainable and equitable economic growth. Through our work with businesses across the region, we’re supporting innovation to create low carbon goods, processes and services with international reach. On campus, our Accounting, Business and Law Clinics are providing students with valuable work experience while supporting the productivity of the wider community.
