Responsible Consumption and Production

Sustainable Development Goal 12 is about ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns, which is key to sustain the livelihoods of current and future generations.

 The University of Regina and Luther College co-lead Sustainable Development Goal #12 Cluster on Responsible Consumption and Production. The Cluster is an initiative of the International Association of Universities Global Cluster on Higher Education and Research for Sustainable Development.

 The Cluster is composed of seven partner universities. The Cluster’s role is to engage with SDG 12 projects in teaching, research, leadership and campus operations, and promote the role of higher education in helping to achieve the SDGs and Agenda 2030. The Cluster holds regular virtual meetings and has helped to organize two international conferences, one international panel and one UN High Level Political Forum webinar since it was established in 2019.
