    Abstract

    The staff and students at Charles Sturt University have much to be proud of. Every day our people take up the call of yindyamarra winhanganha, a Wiradjuri phrase meaning the wisdom to know how to live well in a world worth living in. This drives us to deliver impact through our research, our graduates, the operation of our facilities and campuses, and our engagement with our regional communities.
    We also come together to progress the work of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and its associated 17 goals.
    In 2021, the initiatives of our staff and students to support sustainable development were many, diverse and provided support across all 17 of the goals. At the institutional level, this included the launch of a multi-million dollar research institution focused on agriculture, water and the environment, and over 1,300 research publications in collaboration with international partners as well as key partnerships with stakeholders such as IBM, Axiom, Marathon Health and Transgrid.
    We also expanded our rooftop solar program, further enhancing our carbon neutral status and commitment to renewable energy.
    Our people are leading by example too, volunteering at COVID-19 vaccination hubs, donating blood, and running community events to plant trees and create pollinator gardens across our campuses. Through our teaching, we instil the importance of the Sustainable Development Goals in our students, with sustainability and global citizenship key tenets of our graduate learning outcomes.
    This 2021 report is a reflection of the impactful work of our staff, students and community continues to inspire and motivate us all to continue working together to deliver the 2030 Agenda.
