16 October 2018 - Rutgers University (United States), a member institution of the United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI), is commemorating this year’s United Nations Day (24 October 2018) by staging an interactive program that helps establish linkages between sustainability projects on campus and within communities in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The event, entitled Local Engagement, Global Results: Take Action on United Nations Day! is sponsored by RU Sustainable and Rutgers Global and will take place at the College Avenue Student Center of the institution.
