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:
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.
If you would like to submit a resource - email it here.
If you are an SDG Accord signatory and would like to join the SDG Accord Learning Network - request to join here.
