In 2015, the United Nations' largest planning and consultation process produced the 2030 Agenda for Global Sustainable Development and was adopted unanimously by all 193 states. At the heart of this agenda are the 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

However, global goals can only be achieved if they are supported by concrete, local and regional activities. As a result the goal of the SDG competition started by “Klimabündnis” is to shed a light on these activities. There were 54 submissions in Lower Austria in 2018 - a great sign that a multitude of actors are taking steps in the right direction. Participants were asked to submit large and small sustainability projects from communities, schools, companies, parishes, regions and initiatives. The content of the submissions ranged from sustainable agriculture to initiatives for the careful use of resources and socio-economic projects.

We congratulate the winners and are honored that the international master course "MSc Renewable Energy Systems" has also been selected by the expert jury as one of 17 signposts into the right direction. The main criterion here is: "It is important that the submissions pursue the goal ’A good life for all’ worldwide - for present as well as future generations within the ecological limits of our planet". From the 19th to 28th of September 2019 - around the SDG anniversary - the “Klimabündnis” organizes a sustainability tour, which will stop at all 17 selected projects, including the Energiepark Bruck/Leitha. We are very much looking forward to it and will keep you posted.
