Contributions towards Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

What is Sustainable Living?
Wikipedia defines ‘Sustainable Living’ as,

“Sustainable living is a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual’s or society’s use of the Earth’s natural resources and personal resources. Practitioners of sustainable living often attempt to reduce their carbon footprint by altering methods of transportation, energy consumption, and diet. Proponents of sustainable living aim to conduct their lives in ways that are consistent with sustainability, in natural balance and respectful of humanity’s symbiotic relationship with the Earth’s natural ecology and cycles. The practice and general philosophy of ecological living is highly interrelated with the overall principles of sustainable development.”

Socio-economic development is a crucial element and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) play a vital role in preparation of human capital and hence provide a strong foundation for the development and progress of the society. HEIs not only provide well-trained and competent human resource but also act as initiators of knowledge based socio-economic development.
