The 1457-17 challenge.

No, this is not our PIN number but a short-hand way of remembering how sustainability, the process of improving the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of Wales, is defined in Wales.

  • ONE sustainable development principle (meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs)
  • FOUR PILLARS (culture, economy, environment, society)
  • FIVE ways of working
  • SEVEN well-being goals
  • SEVENTEEN United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Doctoral School Sustainability Workshop

The workshop aims to help you understand how your research contributes to sustainability and the Well-being of Future Generations (WFG) and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the overarching sustainable development framework in Wales and Internationally.  This approach to sustainability provides an opportunity for innovative thinking, creative action and responsible research & enterprise and our aim is to demonstrate that your doctoral research activities contribute towards these.

This workshop is run by The Sustainability Lab at Bangor University. 

Slides and pictures from the sustainability workshop held on 27/11/2019.
