Membership of Our University to the International Network of Scientific Approaches and Solutions for Sustainable Development

At the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Summit in New York on September 25, 2015, country leaders came together and adopted the Sustainable Development Goals, consisting of 17 goals and 169 targets to eradicate poverty in all its dimensions and ensure the common prosperity of humanity by 2030.

The Declared Sustainable Development Goals are a global call to action to end poverty, protect the environment, address the climate crisis, share prosperity equitably and achieve peace. The goal is to ensure a better and more livable world for humanity and future generations.

Higher education institutions, which undertake critical tasks in the development and welfare of countries, also have an important role as one of the stakeholders that contribute to achieving sustainable development goals. On the other hand, it is important that universities, which are almost like a small city with their large size and population, adopt the principle of being sustainable to minimize the negative environmental, social and economic impacts while carrying out their activities, as well as offering a livable green campus to their stakeholders and leading the society in sustainability.

In this direction, our U-university has become one of the member organizations in the international Sustainable Development Solutions Network.
