About the Agenda 2030 Graduate School

The 2030 Agenda is the framework for sustainable development signed by the world's nations to end extreme poverty, reduce inequalities, solve the climate crisis, promote peace and equity and much more. To achieve the goals, research has several important roles: to identify challenges and conflicting objectives, contribute with new solutions, generate dialogue and learning between different societal stakeholders and to critically analyse the goals. Lund University aspires to be a part of the solution and has therefore started a graduate school focusing on societal challenges, the 2030 Agenda and a sustainable development.

The 17 global goals for sustainable development. A picture

Lund University has invested in a graduate school focusing on societal challenges and the 2030 Agenda, the first of its kind in Sweden. 17 doctoral students from all faculties will be financed through the graduate school. All doctoral students will be enrolled to a specific research study programme, and simultaneously take part in the university-wide interdisciplinary research studies courses developed on the basis of the issues defined by the global goals. 

There will also be several activities linked to the graduate school to highlight the global sustainability agenda and to advance the research front on issues concerning the 2030 Agenda. Join our upcoming seminars, conferences, study trips and collaborations with various societal stakeholders, see our events page, or engage with us in new collaborations.

The Agenda 2030 Graduate School is administrated via Lund University Sustainability Forum and the Centre for Environmental and Climate Research at Lund University.
