Sustainability goals at AYY
AYY is committed to promoting all UN sustainable development goals in our activities. By signing the official SDG (sustainable development goals) accord, AYY is committed to promoting environmental, social, economic and cultural sustainability as part of AYY's services, advocacy, campus development and student life. AYY has a particular focus on developing quality education, sustainable cities and communities, acute climate action and cooperation.
AYY's goal is to be a bold and responsible community that understands its role when facing the greatest global challenges of our time. AYY bears its responsibility for the collective future of the environment and society as well as for a liveable Earth by promoting sustainability both in the University community and in the wider society, where biodiversity and global justice are intrinsic values. In addition to climate action and minimizing greenhouse gas emissions, all activities must take into account all other planetary boundaries as well, including acidification and eutrophication, biodiversity loss and land use changes.
