15. Life on Land: Protect, restore, and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.
Universities can actively contribute to SDG 15, “Life on Land,” through a variety of actions. They can engage in research and innovation focused on terrestrial ecosystem conservation and sustainable land management, providing valuable insights and solutions to address deforestation, desertification, and biodiversity loss. By offering educational programs in environmental science, conservation, and sustainable agriculture, universities can raise awareness and equip students with the knowledge and skills needed to tackle land-related challenges. Additionally, universities can collaborate with local communities and governments to implement reforestation and land restoration projects. Through their research, education, and community engagement efforts, universities play a crucial role in protecting, restoring, and promoting the sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, ultimately contributing to the preservation of our planet’s vital resources and biodiversity.
