15. Life On Land

Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 15

Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 15 focuses on protecting, restoring, and promoting the sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, managing forests, combating desertification, halting and reversing land degradation, and halting biodiversity loss. Centurion University of Technology and Management is dedicated to this goal through a range of impactful initiatives and actions.

Community Engagements: At Centurion University, we actively engage with local communities, promoting environmental awareness and the importance of preserving terrestrial ecosystems. Our programs include workshops, seminars, and hands-on activities that encourage people to connect with nature, fostering a deep appreciation for the environment. Through these initiatives, we aim to build a stronger bond between our academic institution and the local communities, creating a mutual understanding of the significance of SDG 15.

Academics: In our pursuit of SDG 15, our academic programs, especially within the School of Environmental Sciences, empower students with the knowledge and tools to become stewards of the environment. We educate our students about sustainable forestry practices, wildlife conservation, and innovative technologies that aid in ecosystem preservation. Our curriculum equips students with the skills needed to address the challenges associated with terrestrial ecosystem protection.
