“The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership.” (https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/sdgs)

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0XTBYMfZyrM) are omnipresent in discussing a more sustainable and responsible development on the local, regional, and global level. Governments, public institutions, private companies, Non-Governmental Organizations, civil societies, movements and associations, trade unions, universities – and last but not least citizens – embrace the basic values and align to the general direction of the SDGs.

The promotion of environmental health, i.e. the branch of public health dealing with all the factors of the natural and manmade environment that may impact health, such as various biological, chemical, physical, social, and psychological factors, is crucial for the achievement of the SDGs. The interdisciplinary and interprofessional collaboration, the education, and the communication, as required by environmental health promotion, do offer sustainable pathways towards the achievement of the 17 goals.
