One year ago, Elsevier’s parent company, RELX Group, launched the SDG Resource Centre — a free interactive education platform with content curated from across the organisation related to the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the world. The site features research articles, news, reports, videos, webinars, events and tools and also includes content from our UN partners. Content can be sorted by SDG, keyword, tags, geography and more.

The Resource Centre is being used by universities, governments, corporations, NGOs, researchers and others.
