Previous editions

The SDGs and Blanquerna-URL

The SDGs have gained enormous momentum in recent years because, unlike other campaigns, like the MDGs that preceded them, they address all countries, not just the most vulnerable. Moreover, they emphasize the links between the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainable development and call for the explicit involvement of companies, civil society, the third sector and, of course, the university.

Personal Blanquerna amb els ODS

Companies and SDGs

Blanquerna-URL invites institutions and the business world to support projects that go beyond each organization, so that together we can bring about a more sustainable world.

The Blanquerna Impulsa Awards seek to create a network of companies, universities and schools, in line with the spirit of the last SDG, number 17, which urges us to: "Encourage and promote effective public, public-private and civil society partnerships, building on the experience and resourcing strategies of partnerships."
