SDG 17 - Partnerships for the goals

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals commit to ending poverty and inequality and addressing climate change by 2030. Meeting the SDGs by 2030 will require global partnership, and collaboration between governments, the private sector, and civil society all working towards these shared objectives.

We are leading by example in our commitment to supporting the UN SDGs. As an institution, we are actively working towards these goals by prioritising actions to align our teaching and curriculum with the SDGs. Nationally, we are signatories of several covenants in support of equality, diversity and inclusion. Internationally, we’re leading a British Council consortium to address major global challenges and issues.
