Agenda 2030 as a Framework for Collaboration (AGERA) Report
The project ”Agenda 2030 and the global goals for sustainable development as a framework for collaboration” (AGERA), brought together eight Swedish HEIs with the aim to strengthen collaborative capacity in support of Agenda 2030 and the SDGs. The project took its starting point in a set of collaboration activities – cases – ranging from internal organizational processes, through strategy development and educational portfolios, to large external collaborative projects – all with impact on sustainability. By selecting cases relevant to our respective organizational contexts, we explored how Agenda 2030 may be used as a framework to stimulate and integrate sustainability in the universities’ core operations: education, research and collaboration, with particular emphasis on the latter.
Throughout the project, the universities regularly shared knowledge, experiences and insights with the purpose to increase our awareness and understanding linked to a set of targets:
- Develop knowledge on how to strengthen contribution to Agenda 2030 and the SDGs through collaboration
- Develop methods or approaches for how HEIs can use Agenda 2030 and the SDGs as a framework for collaboration
- Evaluate impact – positive and negative – from collaboration activities on the SDGs
