SDG 11: SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES

“Cities and communities must themselves be sustainable. More and more of the world’s population lives in urban centres, and this is often the home of our universities too. Cities can be places of great innovation and opportunity, but they can also be home to intense poverty and inequality. The interaction between universities and their communities, urban and rural, needs to be a positive one that can last for generations.”
