Last month in New York, United Nations members adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which included 17 Sustainable Development Goals. These goals build on the eight Millennium Development Goals, which ranged from reducing extreme poverty rates to halting the spread of HIV/AIDS.
The new Sustainable Development Goals address poverty, hunger, education, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, industry innovation and infrastructure and life below water, among other topics.
To help the public better understand these goals and what they mean for all of us, CSU researchers will discuss the goals and related CSU research at Avogadro’s Number, 5 – 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 14.
Panel experts include:
- Jessica Davis, Department of Soil & Crop Sciences
- Andrew Seidl, Department of Agriculture & Resources Economics
- Stephanie Malin, Department of Sociology, and
- Cameron Ghalambor, Department of Biology.
The discussion will be moderated by Gene Kelly, associate director for Research and Development at CSU’s School of Global Environmental Sustainability.
The panel discussion — part of the SoGES Managing the Planet series — is free of charge and open to the public. You do not need to register to attend.
