Introduction

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the framework for training the stakeholders and decision makers of tomorrow to understand and solve the big societal challenges of the 21st century. It’s also a framework for RSM’s mission to be a force for positive change in the world. Each of the UN’s 17 SDGs refers to a big societal challenge and requires more than one stakeholder to solve them. RSM is at the forefront of breakthrough academic research and education in the field of sustainability. The videos presented on these webpages show how each challenge – represented by an SDG – relates to business.

Below Dr Amanda Williams and Professor Rob van Tulder explain why we need to completely shift the way we view these systemic challenges as business opportunities. Professor Cees van Dam tells about the relationship between the SDGs and human rights.
