  • Setting out a roadmap to contribute to all the 17 goals in several different ways at the university level. 
  • In collaboration with the faculty and the university authorities, train students on the importance of every Sustainable Development Goal and suggest some ways to promote them in the university through a variety of events such as seminars, workshops, on-site activities, films, and video presentations.
  • To increase and strengthen the level of interaction and social coexistence between students.
  • To strengthen and increase relationships between students of different backgrounds, genders, cultures, and ethnicities. 
  • To inform the students and the audience on ways to establish partnership and collaborative planning in achieving the SDGs.
