SDG Global Research Seminars

The University of Sydney's SGD Global Research Seminars will focus on the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs), as endorsed by all UN member states in 2015. They provide an opportunity to take the lead on issues that are of vital importance to everyone on the planet. 

The seminars will first focus on SDG 2 Zero Hunger – end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture and SDG 11 Sustainable Cities and Communities – make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable. 

The seminars will serve as a catalyst for collaborative research projects addressing various challenges associated with the SDGs. Participants are encouraged to make connections, create networks, identify areas of compatibility and alignment and develop collaborative projects.
