University-Led Practice Activities
The Sustainability Initiative committee developed a tool to map and display how classes and initiatives across CMU are related to the 17 SDGs. Each activity was manually tagged by the Sustainability Initiative team with up to three SDGs and linked to the source website so that anyone interested in how CMU is addressing an SDG can easily access the relevant information.
The Sustainable Development Goals
The SDGs, also known as the Global Goals, are 17 global objectives to create a more equitable and viable planet by 2030. These goals came together following input from millions of people around the world, with younger generations especially engaged. They were adopted by the global community at the United Nations in 2015.
