The purpose of the mini-course and workshop is to increase PhD students’ awareness for the Global Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and the Swedish Environmental Quality Objectives (EQO).

An overarching goal is to inform about possible conflicts and synergies when working with the SDG and EQO regarding environmental monitoring, research, and other commitments under international agreements. Focus will be on ways of communication to improve the implication of the goals and objectives to work for the final goal of a sustainable use of our natural resources.
