Sustainable Development Goals Accord
In early 2018, Glasgow Kelvin College became the first to sign the Sustainable Development Goals Accord. The Accord is the collective response of the College and University Sectors to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The College has signed the Accord to express its commitment to environmental sustainability, and to highlight the work being done as part of our Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP).
Interested in Our Climate Change Action Plan?
n partnership with the Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges (EAUC), the College has pledged to report on progress, and share its learning and actions taken to address the Goals with other learning institutions on a national and international level.

What are the Sustainable Development Goals?
here are 17 Sustainable Development Goals (also known as the Global Goals) in the Accord, which are a universal call to take action and help end poverty, protect and preserve our planet, and ensure that everyone enjoys and lives life in peace and prosperity.
Education has a critical role in delivering learning and action on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the College is at the beginning of its journey in helping to achieve this.
There are already a number of exciting projects that have started around the College, which acknowledge the importance of environmental sustainability, and also help towards bringing about change for good and benefit to the wider community.
