Mission Statement

By 2030, UL will have developed a maker culture across its campuses, where repair, reuse and local production is widespread.
Mass production and planned obsolescence has eroded the presence of traditional crafts, leading to overconsumption and products designed for short lifespans. This mission sees UL nurture a campus maker culture that prioritises the reuse, repair and re- purposing of products. In doing so, the campus community will reduce its consumption rate and restore demand for high-quality and locally made goods.

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.
