Join our
movement
for a better
and more sustainable
future

Our goal is to unite disciplines around architecture in support of the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals and establish global sustainability practices across all disciplines by 2030. Under the overarching title “Sustainable Futures – Leave No One Behind” the UIA World Congress of Architects in Copenhagen 2023 aims at making architecture a central tool in achieving the Goals by 2030.

The ambition is to expand the case studies with more architectural cases from all over the world over time. We invite you to submit your realized project with a short description to join the case studies and become an inspiration to others in how architecture can contribute to the realization of the Goals. There is not one answer to that. But we can gather what we know, learn from others and challenge what we do.

A guidebook
with all the
case studies

The guidebook to the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals with 17 chapters presents each Goal and gives examples of realized projects that illustrate how architecture can contribute to achieving the Goals. The booklet is the source of all the cases under “Case studies” and the descriptions of each of the Goals under ”Goals and Architecture” on this website. The publication of the booklet was funded by the Dreyer Foundation and made in partnership with the Institute of Architecture and Technology at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation, the Danish Association of Architects and the UIA Commission on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
