Make an impact through the study of science

Tuesday, Dec. 7, 2021 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Sustainable development is an organizing principle for meeting human development goals while simultaneously sustaining the ability of natural systems to provide the natural resources and ecosystem services on which the economy and society depend on. Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.[1]

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are a universal call to action adopted in 2015 to promote global prosperity while protecting the planet.  More important than ever, the goals provide a critical foundation for a COVID-19 recovery plan.
