KPU's new SDG mapping initiative

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was adopted by the United Nations in 2015 to provide a shared vision for global partnership by all countries and people to promote peace and prosperity for people and the planet Earth, now and into the future. The document identifies 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), ranging from eradicating poverty and hunger, to addressing climate change and building inclusive societies by 2030.

Higher education institutions have a critical role in helping society achieve the SDGs through leadership, research, teaching and learning, campus operations. In 2020, Universities Canada initiated a pan-Canadian project focused on increasing awareness of SDG projects on Canadian campuses that connects stakeholders through cross-university and university-community partnerships that embrace the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.


Why We Are Here

As part of its commitment to sustainability, in KPU’s Strategic Plan, Vision 2023 (Goal B1), KPU is mapping its academic and administrative ecosystems towards illustrating how it supports the SDGs, as well as highlighting areas of strength that might be offered as best practice examples for other post-secondary institutions, and as well, potential for opportunities to inform KPU’s strategic planning and direction to align with the KPU2050 Campus Master Plan
