With the future of our planet increasingly uncertain and issues such as microplastics, air pollution and renewable energy dominating the news, many of our student partners, staff, and alumni want to ‘make a difference’ during their time at Swansea University and beyond. One of way of doing this is to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Many projects carried out by staff and students in the College of Science are actively contributing to the success of the goals. Find out more about how we are helping by clicking on the links below each goal.

Staff and students can also help to achieve these goals at a local level by participating in initiatives such as beach cleans in Swansea Bay, Earth Hour, the Sustainability Award, or the Brighter Futures scheme.
