The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals were adopted in 2015 as a starting point for concerted efforts to safeguard the future of our planet. NMBU represents a unique academic synthesis of environmental and life sciences, bio-production, veterinary medicine, technology, land use planning and economics that provides us with the perfect position to help solve these challenges and enable a sustainable future in line with the Sustainable Development Goals. Such solutions will mainly be found at the interface and in the interaction between our subject areas.
NMBU carries a particular responsibility; we will contribute to securing livelihoods for future generations. Our students will be encouraged to adopt a mind set in support of sustainability. They will have the knowledge, competencies and skills required to meet major global societal challenges.
We cultivate strong professional environments and cooperation across subjects and disciplines, promoting new ideas and innovation.
