Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


RU Sustainable events, held across the state of New Jersey, bring together students, faculty, staff, and local community representatives, including businesses, government, and nonprofits, to engage with the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). The purpose of the events is to learn, share, and shape opportunities as individuals and collectively as members of the Rutgers community whereby we can foster sustainability in our lives, local communities, Rutgers, and society by connecting with the SDGs through service, education, research, the arts, or some other means. While each of us may be able to contribute to the advancement of the SDGs in our own way, together, our collective impact will be greater than the sum of our individual actions.
