The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by all United Nations (UN) Member States in 2015, recognized that ending poverty and other social disadvantages must be guided by strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, spur economic growth, and tackling climate change. To mobilize this call-to-action, 17 Sustainable Development Goals were formed as a global partnership between UN countries. The theme for this conference is informed by the diversity of the Sustainable Development Goals and the engagement that they will help facilitate.

This symposium provides an opportunity for students in graduate and undergraduate programs in nursing and other health-related fields to discuss and address how these goals relate to their own research and work.
