Microsite Offers Look at UN Sustainable Development Goals

In one of its series of interdisciplinary microsites addressing important public issues, SAGE Publishing is offering free access to a suite of articles that examine the research and broader ideas central to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals provide an international framework to measure society’s biggest challenges. The goals, reduced to the simplest terms, are for no poverty, zero hunger, good health, quality education, gender equality, clean water, clean energy, decent work, innovation, reduced inequality, sustainable communities, responsible consumption, action of climate change, attention to life in the water and on land, justice and partnering to see these goals made real.

The microsite is intended as a hub for research published on sustainability across all a wide variety of social science, science, technology and biological subjects. The material, numbering dozens of journal articles, draws from SAGE’s extensive stable of academic journals spanning pertinent areas. One goal of this and other SAGE microsites is to examine the entire spectrum of research on area of public interest – note, not in a specific discipline – to help researchers pursue knowledge outside of their usual silos.

Some of the specific high-profile or innovative pieces in the new collection include “Why does everyone think cities can save the planet?” by Hillary Angelo and David Wachsmuth from the journal Urban Studies; “Genes, Gender Inequality, and Educational Attainment” by Pamela Herd et al in American Sociological Review; and “Implementation of sustainable development goals: The role for business academics” by Katherine Leanne Christ and Roger Leonard Burritt in the Australian Journal of Management.

The collection includes links to other materials to help in understanding the SDGs, including to United Nations pages and to SAGE’s own sustainability pledge (“SAGE staff have been working to reduce our environmental impact for over 10 years but we know we have much more to do..”).
