The university has taken an innovative approach to sustainability literacy and communication via the “SDGs at the Theater” initiative, which aimed to disseminate and teach about the UN 2030 SDGs agenda among the academic community and local residents of Brescia. The learning initiatives were a series of lectures and events held at public theaters on a bi-monthly basis, which encouraged public participation.
