The UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) has been operating since 2012 under the auspices of the UN Secretary-General. SDSN mobilizes global scientific and technological expertise to promote practical solutions for sustainable development, including the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement.
Spanning six continents, the SDSN Networks Program currently draws upon the knowledge and educational capacity of over 450 member institutions. They work together to direct a multidimensional global network that attempts to address some of the world’s most pressing problems.
SDSN is building a global network of universities, research centers, civil society organization, and other knowledge institutions to support the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. National and Regional SDSNs support the localization of SDGs and their implementation, develop long-term transformation pathways for sustainable development, promote education around Agenda 2030, and launch solution initiatives. SDSN Youth is an important branch of our networks and is active in most of the regions in which we work.
