The term “green university” is commonly known in the world as all kinds of activities under the vision of “sustainable development.” It also represents an important responsibility undertaken by higher education for the development of society.
The Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs, also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by all united nation members. The SDGs are integrated, universal and transformative-that is, they recognize action in one area that will affect outcomes in others, and development must balance social, economic and environmental sustainability. Simultaneously, UI GreenMetric World University Ranking is one of the most important organizations which believes that many universities around the world have strong efforts to implement environmentally friendly and sustainable policies and programs. In 2019 the UI GreenMetric World University Ranking has the major important topic which involves the SDGs “Sustainable University in a Changing World: Lessons, Challenges and Opportunities”.
