Change for a Sustainable Future 

Since 2016 The Royal Danish Academy – Architecture, Design, Conservation has worked strategic and in education and research with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The presentation will address the following questions: Why did the Royal Danish Academy decide to make the SDG’s a common point of focus in the first place? How has this decision influenced the development of the institution? What has been the impact on society of this decision? And is working with the SDGs in education and research a problematic politicization?
