„The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Goals interconnect and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030.“

(United Nations, https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/)

With the adoption of Agenda 2030, a further milestone was set in 2015 in the global sustainability debate for sustainable development. The Agenda sets out 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that address the five core messages of people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnership.

In this interdisciplinary course, various SDGs are addressed by experts from different fields. In WS21/22, the focus is particularly on the topics of inequality and justice.
