UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
On September 25th, 2015, countries adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.
One of IMSA’s founding principles is to “significantly influence life on our planet.” The International Student Science Fair (ISSF) 2018 program, hosted at the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy in June 2018, will address three of the world’s issues that surpass national boundaries and cannot be resolved by any one country acting alone. This trailblazing event will encourage and foster cooperation and collaboration among participating students and educators while addressing the global goals of clean and affordable energy, zero hunger and clean water to improve people’s lives around the world.
