Network Member Profile: SDG16 Academic Impact Hub
We are always striving to identify new Members that can contribute knowledge to share with ALL our Network Members.
So we are pleased to announce that Mark Charlton – Associate Director of Sustainable Development Goal Impact/Net Zero Research Theme Director at De Montfort University, has joined the Parallel Lives Network representing the United Nations Academic Impact Initiative Global Academic Hub for SDG 16.
De Montfort University is the global academic hub for one of those goals, SDG 16 to promote peace, justice and strong institutions.
As DMU is the only university in Britain to be granted the accolade, it is a huge honour but it is also a massive responsibility, not least because SDG 16 is the goal that effectively allows all the other goals to flourish.
If there is no peace, justice and strong institutions then there is little chance of eliminating poverty, having good health, decent economic prosperity, reducing inequalities and tackling climate change.
