The SDG Accord

The SDG Accord image #1

The SDG Accord is the university and college sector’s collective response to the sustainable development goals (SDGs). It was launched in September 2017 and is administered by the Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges.

The purpose of the SDG Accord is twofold:

  1. To inspire, celebrate and advance the critical role that education has in delivering the SDGs and the value it brings to governments, business and wider society.
  2. To get institutions to commit to doing more to deliver the goals, to annually report on their progress, and to do so in ways which share the learning with each other both nationally and internationally.  

Here on the Sustainability Exchange - you will find resources to support and inspire you on your SDG journey - broken down into each of the SDGs 17 goals. There will be examples of best practice, research about the SDGs in post-16 education and eventually reporting data and metrics on progress.

To sign the SDG Accord or find out more information about it - click here.
