Impacting Global Goals Through Research

Research Supporting the Sustainable Development Goals

Through our research, we strive to change society for the better - whether that is connecting individuals and communities through shared local heritage, or contributing to international efforts to address global grand challenges such as climate change.

As a University created by its community for its community to reduce inequalities, we understand the vital role education and scholarship play in ensuring that in our rapidly-changing world, no one is left behind.  We support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, framing our research and collaborations in ways that can contribute to delivering peace and prosperity for people and planet.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are an urgent call for action to tackle some of the world's most pressing problems. They recognise that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
