UN Sustainable Development Goals


Taking action for people, for the planet 

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs, are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. The SDGs address the global challenges we face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice.

Royal Roads is committed to advancing sustainability in all our academic programs and operations, with a focus on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

We are part of the global conversation, and offer place-based and locally relevant solutions to communities, and to the communities that our faculty, staff and students call home.

Advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 

Dr. Tracy Smith-Carrier, our Canada Research Chair in Advancing the United Nations SDGs, is one of many RRU faculty working to foster these global goals for a more just and equitable future.

President Philip Steenkamp talks with Dr. Smith-Carrier about how climate change is the biggest social, environmental, health and economic threat in human history.
