Within the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) promulgated by the United Nations (“2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”, resolution adopted by the UN General Assembly on September 25, 2015), the institutions of higher education are called to play an essential role in promoting and deploying sustainable solutions. The overall goal is to build a society sensitized to the environmental challenge facing humanity by promoting a sustainable attitude in a broad sense to the planet and future generations.
