The United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) set up by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in 2012, promotes practical problem solving for sustainable development, including the design and implementation of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted in 2015 by the United Nations.
Through a growing number of National and Regional Networks, SDSN supports the localization and implementation of SDGs, develops long-term transformative pathways for sustainable development, promotes education around Agenda 2030, and launches solution initiatives.
SDSN Greece is co-hosted by ICRE8: International Center for Research on the Environment and the Economy, Political Economy of Sustainable Development Lab and ATHENA Research and Innovation Centre. It is co-chaired by Prof. Phoebe Koundouri and Prof. Andreas Papandreou, aiming to contribute to achieving the goals of the SDSN network.
SDSN Greece is a member of EIT Climate-KIC Hub Greece, a knowledge and innovation community established and funded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT)/ Ευρωπαϊκό Ινστιτούτο Καινοτομίας και Τεχνολογίας (EIT) in 2010.
