Western Sydney University has acknowledged the responsibility through our teaching and learning to equip the next generation of leaders, innovators and thinkers to understand the global challenges facing the world and the role they can play in rising to meet these challenges.
We are doing so by providing our students with educational opportunity such as the Sustainability Bootcamp and international mobility experiences to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development.
In becoming an educational signatory to the SDSN Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Initiative, Western is committed to support and promote the principles of the SDGs through our teaching, research, campus operations and outreach.
Our curriculum work is aligned to SDG 4.7: By 2030, ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including, among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development.
Our programs and specailisations align to many of the goals.
