May 11, 2021
     The Science festival is annually held at the National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine. This year, students of the Faculty of Agricultural Management joined the event with the goal to exchange and share knowledge and information. The Educational and Scientific Laboratory of Economic theory and Bioeconomy staff organized practical classes in accordance with the educational programme in Economics. The main topic under investigation was the bioeconomic development in Ukraine and in the world.

    Sustainable Development Goals – 2030 were presented by a 1st year student of the Faculty of Agriculture Management, Alina Zherebko. In September 2015, the 70th session of the UN General Assembly in New York hosted the UN Sustainable Development Summit, which approved new development targets. The final document from the summit, ‘Transforming our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’, identified 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 supporting targets. Like other UN Member States, Ukraine joined the global process of sustainable development.

    The EU plans to halve harmful emissions by 2030 compared to 1990 levels. If everything succeeds, there will be no greenhouse gas emissions in Europe by 2050, and economic growth will be linked to the use of renewable energy sources. European Green Deal was researched by Victoria Kryvtsun. Сlean energy creates opportunities for the development of alternative renewable energy sources, production support for sustainable and eco-friendly production methods, construction development of environmentally friendly building, sustainable mobility transition to sustainable and eco-friendly modes of transport.

    Ukraine also joins EU initiatives to overcome the consequences of climate change. The Ministry of Energy and Coal Mining has already presented the Сoncept of adapting the Ukrainian energy system to the "green" transition. Ukraine is holding consultations with the representatives of the EU and the European Energy Union on the effective implementation of this concept.
