AaltoSDG is a mobile application designed to inspire Aalto University students, employees and partners to make more sustainable choices every day. The pilot application provides insight into the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and helps you learn how you can contribute to reaching those goals.

At the same time, the application demonstrates how Aalto University research, teaching and events can support international work to achieve sustainable development goals at the local level. The application presents monthly challenges to the user based on the SDG themes. Throughout the month, themes that change at the same time highlight Aalto's research and researchers.

Development of the application

The AaltoSDG application will be launched at the beginning of Aalto University's 10th anniversary year and Aalto staff and students can download it.

The application is not finalised yet and will be actively developed throughout 2020. Aalto community is encouraged to participate in the development by giving feedback, which can be done directly in the application. You can also volunteer and participate into testing the application during development sprints.

Using the application

You can download the application from Apple App Store or Google Play store.

It is possible to use the application without logging in or logging in with Aalto login details. It is possible to store and transfer logged-in user information between different devices. However, the data can't be transferred between devices, for example, when switching phones without logging in. 

The application has two functionalities at this stage:

  • actions based on monthly themes, which are based on the SDGs. Actions can be challenges, activities and thought inspiring quizzes.  
  • SDG data bank, which contains the content of UN's SDGs.

More functionalities will be introduced later and will be developed further in spring 2020.

Please read the application’s terms and conditions.
