The UN Sustainable Development Goals are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity, with a commitment by 193 countries to meet the ambitious targets by 2030.
Over the course of 2019, the research community at University College Dublin will be highlighting their current work in relation to each Goal, discussing progress, opportunities and challenges in Ireland and internationally. Each seminar will feature three researchers from different backgrounds talking about their research, with an opportunity for the audience to join the discussion and contribute their perspective.
The first seminar will take place at 1pm on Tuesday, 12 February 2019 in Theatre P, Newman Building, UCD Belfield, and will address Goal 1, End poverty in all its forms everywhere.
