AaltoSDG is a mobile application designed to inspire Aalto University students, employees and partners to make more sustainable choices every day. The actions teach you extensively about different sustainability issues and choices, and how they relate to the SDG goals of the UN.

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 weekly challenges to the user based on the SDG themes. Throughout the year, themes that change at the same time highlight Aalto's research and researchers.

Development of the application

The AaltoSDG application was launched at the beginning of Aalto University's 10th anniversary year on 8.1.2020. The language of the application is English.

The application is actively developed based on user feedback. Aalto community and all app users are 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.
