SDG):The Sustainable Development Goals are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere. The 17 Goals were adopted by all UN Member States in 2015, as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which set out a 15-year plan to achieve the Goals. Today, progress is being made in many places, but, overall, action to meet the Goals is not yet advancing at the speed or scale required, and the Covid-19 Pandemic has further slowed down the pace. 2020 needs to usher in a decade of ambitious action to deliver the Goals by 2030. Students are invited to facilitate the attainment of this agenda by applying the skills and knowledge accumulated throughout their study to provide meaningful contribution through academic research.Assessment (1):
