SDG Journey Program: a new initiative to identify Nova SBE’s SDG Ambassadors

Two CEMS’ representatives joined Role to Play to draw a new program that promises to unite the community to contribute even further for the SDG Agenda. They are Melusine and Charlotte. Get to know them and the project!

Get to know Melusine and Charlotte and the Nova SBE's SDG Ambassadors project through this video.

What is the SDG Journey Program?

Do you want to actively engage in sustainable development and be surrounded by people who possess the same drive to make this change happen?  

Join the new SDG Journey Program now and represent a certain SDG among our NOVA SBE community! The program’s goal is to bring the theoretical concept of the SDGs closer to our NOVA SBE community by demonstrating the joint effort that we are making on social and environmental challenges.  

For the following two semesters, you will work in a team of 4 students on one SDG: You create and implement your projects around a specific SDG and help bundle the existing initiatives on the SDG at NOVA. More specifically, you can consult student initiatives on projects related to the SDG, foster knowledge exchange across projects, and use your role as an SDG ambassador to promote initiatives among the NOVA community.

Join our initiative to actively shape the action on and perception about sustainable development at NOVA SBE.  

In case of any other questions, please reach out to
