Sustainable Development Goals

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs, table below) are major issues of this century, Signed at the UN, they aim to build and implement the world of tomorrow on very broad topics such as the environment, health, poverty, education, economy, social sciences and humanities, law, relations with socio-economic actors, etc.

If the operational aspects of the SDGs are important and already steered by the SD Department of AMU, the research and training aspects are no less essential. The successful implementation of these SDGs inevitably requires interdisciplinarity and, to this end, must call upon all AMU's disciplinary sectors, without forgetting innovation, relations with the socio-economic world and international cooperation, particularly with the countries of the South.

Interdisciplinary training and research are therefore essential to the success of these SDGs. They represent an opportunity to set up a transverse transdisciplinary axis in the field of training, research and relations with the socio-economic world, in connection with our international partners (notably CIVIS).

In this context and in collaboration with the Vice President for SD, the objectives of this mission are mainly to :

- Make the SDGs known: the priority being to promote within the community interdisciplinary flagship projects, within the community,
- Take stock of initiatives to implement the SDGs in research and training;
- Create opportunities for teachers reasearchers and researchers to work with post-docs and students from different disciplines and faculties (around case studies and concrete research and/or training projects), in order to allow for a better consideration of the SDGs.
