Australia will be presenting its first National Voluntary Review (VNR) on national implementation of Agenda 2030 and the SDGs to the United Nations High Level Political Forum in July 2018. The VNR provides an opportunity to highlight Australia’s achievements, priorities and challenges – both domestically and internationally – in advancing the 2030 Agenda.
Several Government departments and agencies have launched calls for case studies on the implementation of certain SDGs or themes as potential contributions towards VNR.
Australian universities contribute to the implementation of the SDGs in many significant ways through their teaching, research, operations and leadership.
Below are opportunities for providing university input into the VNR. We strongly encourage universities to take this opportunity to submit their work, so that the important contribution of the sector is acknowledges and showcased in the VNR.
Environment and energy SDGs
