With over 27,000 students and 2,700 staff dispersed across 3 campuses and the Jordanstown Sports Village, the University’s day to day activities have a considerable impact on the environment, society and the economy, both locally in Northern Ireland and globally.

Through our People, Place and Partnership Strategy, we want to deliver Sustainable Futures for All by delivering a transformative student experience, and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is key to how we will achieve that.

Components of ESD

  • The Sustainable Development Goals

    The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) encompass 17 global objectives set by the United Nations in 2015, intended to be achieved by the year 2030. They aim to focus our attention on a wide range of social, economic, and environmental challenges to create a more sustainable, safer, and prosperous planet for all humanity.  All staff should embed the SDGs and their related subject knowledge in their modules and programmes.
