Our efforts range from quality education to cutting-edge research and innovation, improvement of campus operations, and strong engagement with local, national, and international communities. Look for the SDG Wheel throughout our website to learn our contributions within each area toward particular SDGs.

WHAT ARE THE UN SDGS

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. They address several global challenges humanity currently faces, from climate change to food and water security, poverty, inequality, and environmental degradation.

Learn about the 17 Goals that will transform our world and how you can help to achieve them through your actions at KAUST and elsewhere.
