The UNITWIN/UNESCO Chairs Program is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2017. Of the more than 700 UNESCO Chairs currently existing, around 170 specialise in the fields covered by the Natural Sciences Sector of UNESCO.

As part of these celebrations, early this month took place in Geneva a conference that brought together for the first time all the UNESCO Chairs in Natural Sciences around the world.  Under the slogan “Mobilizing UNESCO Chairs in the Natural Sciences for Policy Action towards the 2030 Agenda” the Chairs built synergies and pooled resources for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals.

As a result of the work sessions, a blueprint was collectively elaborated and adopted by all UNESCO Chairs in Natural Sciences. The Geneva Milestone strengthens the UNESCO Chairs’ contribution to transformative change towards the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development through cooperation.

Adoption of the Geneva Milestone


Our director, Pere Fullana attended the conference and explained the Chair’s contribution to the SDGs goals. Promoting and researching new LCA methodologies and their implementation on the assessment of processes and products, are some of the Chair’s main objectives. 

Here you will find the poster we presented in Geneva, explaining how our work contributes to the Sustainable Development Goals.
