SDG 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions


The sixteenth Sustainable Development Goal aims to promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels. Achieving the SDGs is contingent upon effective and inclusive public institutions that can deliver quality education and healthcare, fair economic policies and inclusive environmental protection. PCGS is in a unique position as an interdisciplinary institution of higher education to help create and promote sustainable policies that protect both human and environmental rights.
