We STEM Sustainability
by Chrysovalantou Kalaitzidou
The European Sustainable and Development Week (ESDW) is a European-wide initiative to stimulate and make visible activities, projects and events that promote sustainable development. It is taking place this year from the 18th of September until the 8th of October. Greek Women in STEM supporting this great initiative, is joining the celebration towards a future of peace and prosperity for people and the planet.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, is a plan of action for prosperity. At its heart lie the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals set an urgent call for action at global scale and recognize that ending poverty should align with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and prompt economic growth, while tackling climate change and working to preserve our natural environment, oceans and forests. According to the United Nations, the goals essentially balance the three axes of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental.
Inspired by this global effort and taking advantage of this European special week, our team of engineers and scientists, highly motivated, decided publish a series of new articles focused on Green Energy and Environmental and Social Sustainability. Driven by this, we will also launch a dedicated column in our Magazine, featuring the articles published during the ESDW as the first of the series. The topics covered in this issue will discuss multiple the following Sustainable Development Goals:
In particular, by launching our new column, especially during the ESDW, Greek Women in STEM aim to:
- raise awareness over the celebration of the ESDW itself
- raise awareness and discussion on how to live more sustainably
- inform of current and future challenges regarding climate action
- open discussion about recycling , green energy and water reuse
- join the European campaign for peace and prosperity for people and the planet
Let’s STEM sustainability together!
