    Abstract

    Every day the staff and students who make up the Charles Sturt University community are contributing to initiatives that will lead to a more sustainable future. Our purpose, inspired by the Wiradjuri phrase, yindyamarra winhanganha, the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in, inspires us to have impact in sustainability.

    The United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the associated 17 goals that all UN members states adopted in 2015, remain our global blueprint to build prosperity while protecting the planet. As a signatory to the Sustainable Development Solutions Network’s University Commitment to the Sustainability Development Goals, we are acutely aware of our imperative to lead by example. We do this in our research, through our graduates, in the manner that we operate and how we engage with ourwider communities.

    Many examples of how we are contributing to a more sustainable future pass by with little recognition or celebration. As such, I think it is important for us to take a moment to reflect on these positive stories to continue to inspire and motivate our community to do what we do best – drive regional outcomes with global impact.We have much to be proud of, yet there are challenges that still need to be solved. Charles Sturt is committed to rise to these challenges and actively collaborate with others to help deliver on the 2030 Agenda.
