The Year in Leadership for the SDGs
Advancing SDG literacy and action.
In this next decade of action, we will all be working to achieve the collective 2030 targets.
Australia must drive a bold plan to ensure we reach the 2030 SDG targets. While there is a long way to go, there are also some positive long-term trends in Australia upon which we can build: average life expectancy for both sexes, proportion of people with tertiary education, water consumption, growth rates in household income, and the share of ASX200 companies submitting credible sustainability reports.
Monash University provides us with clear leadership for the SDGs. The SDGs connect to everything that we do at MSDI and they provide a framework for our strategic priorities.
Our role is to connect knowledge and networks. We are trusted advisors to government and business. We draw together diverse points of view for learning and sharing. And we create the space and structure to experiment, push boundaries, and scale up.
Our education programs teach students the importance of personal leadership to enable them to lead from where they are. In turn, working with these students who bring their curiosity, commitment and passion, gives us energy and hope for the future.
