The Regional Academy on the United Nations (RAUN) is an international, multi-disciplinary education program that brings together UN agencies and outstanding, international students and young scholars who – in the course of nine months and as part of small teams – conduct research projects of relevance for UN agencies. The 2019-2020 Regional Academy on the United Nations addresses these questions focusing on ways to make development efforts more sustainable to support the processes. 2019 represents a good opportunity to investigate the issue, as this year’s UN High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (9 July - 18 July) will focus on Empowering people and ensuring inclusiveness and equality. Taking a holistic perspective, we consider sustainability in environmental and socioeconomic domains. The research projects of the 2019-2020 RAUN will investigate both global approaches to sustainability and concrete applications as well as implications at the local, national and international levels.
