Ocean and Sustainable Development
Research, education and collaboration for a sustainable development are important parts of the University of Gothenburg's vision. In that work, the UN's global sustainability goals are central, in particular goal 14, which aims to conserve and use the oceans, seas and marine resources in a sustainable way.
2021 marks the beginning of the UN's decade for marine research and sustainable development. The increased interest in international and European policy for the sea as a resource to achieve the global sustainability goals, and the need for healthy seas, place great demands on the scientific community to be able to deliver knowledge and competence.
