SLU Future Food is committed to contribute to the global goals for sustainable development. Above all, there seven goals that fall within the scope of our mission.
By 2030, the world's countries are aiming to achieve seventeen global sustainable development goals, adopted in September 2015 by the UN General Assembly. The work with achieving these goals is called Agenda 2030. The Global Objectives and Agenda 2030 aim at eradicating poverty and hunger, realizing human rights for all, achieving gender equality and empowerment for all women and girls, as well as ensuring lasting protection for the planet and its natural resources.
Ca fifty authorities in Sweden have joined forces to contribute to the realization of the required social adjustment. SLU was the first university in Sweden to sign the Joint Declaration of Intent. SLU works with twelve of the seventeen goals. It is about making progress in areas such as poverty and food security, education and health, climate change and sustainable use of ocean and land-based ecosystems.
