Sustainable development goals in your life


The United Nation’s (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) can be found in many parts of your everyday life. RMIT is a UN SDG partner, and there are numerous projects running on campus, in classrooms and through industry partnerships.

In this section, we explore the SDGs in your everyday life. You can design your own sustainability goal by applying the principles we have explored in previous sections, and take action to make the world a little more sustainable.
