Mission Statement

By 2030, UL will have co- developed a trade school that supports the growth of sustainability-based vocations within local communities.
The work of those in trade-based roles is foundational to the thriving of our community. This mission sees UL play an active role in propagating sustainability-led trade education within the region. In doing so, the local community will experience both an increase in educational opportunities and an increase in capacity to deliver trade-based services.

Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 global goals adopted by the United Nations in 2015 to promote sustainable development and address social, economic, and environmental challenges. Each mission and associated project within the Mission Lab portfolio is directly linked to one or more SDGs, ensuring all efforts are in service of true impact.
