Universities present SDG e-zine


The Dutch universities are actively contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Today, chair of the Association of Universities in the Netherlands Pieter Duisenberg presented an e‑zine to Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation Sigrid Kaag which describes the combined efforts of the universities towards achieving the SDGs over the past year. It is of great importance to the universities that the academic research they carry out should contribute to social issues, including the SDGs. Over the past year the universities have worked to raise the visibility of this contribution to the SDGs. One key element here was the monthly presentation of an e-zine that showcases a selection of the research projects by all universities with respect to an SDG. Today’s presentation of a compilation SDG e-zine to Minister Sigrid Kaag concludes the campaign of the past year.
