Working Together for People, Planet, and Prosperity

Working Together for People, Planet, and Prosperity

When the UN announced its 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Climate Change, it was clear that the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were even more ambitious than the previous Millennium Development Goals. It was also clear that collaborative partnerships will be the key to achieving them.

In this podcast you'll hear how the Academy, business leaders, academia, and government are working together to help make the world a better place for all. You'll also hear from young students working on international teams to tackle some of these same challenges, which might inspire you to think about what you can do in your community to help achieve the SDGs.
