The Sustainable Development Goals Programme SDG14 Hub: Life Below Water

Springer Nature’s SDG Programme aims to connect the researchers tackling the world’s toughest challenges with the practitioners in policy and business who desperately need those insights to achieve their goals in improving the world, by making our publishing activities more visible to our key communities through a variety of channels. This channel or ‘hub’ focuses on SDG14 and showcases oceans-related outputs across all of our imprints, content types and academic disciplines.

Norwegian SDG Library

The Norwegian SDG library is going to be an entry point for children aged 6-12 years to reflect on the sustainable development goals. The vision is that the chosen books will support the already strong engagement children and young adults have for climate and environmental issues. Another hope is that authors will be inspired into writing books that support the SDGs, and that publishing houses will focus more on SDGs in their editorial strategies.

Climate Research in Action

Climate Research in Action is a campaign to highlight the importance of research in identifying climate solutions. It’s hosted on a dedicated microsite and includes a brand new compilation of the most important research articles related to climate from across the Nature Portfolio, specially created for COP26. It also features The Ozone Story: a timeline of how science inspired the Montreal Protocol in 1987 after the discovery of a hole in the ozone layer – first published in Nature in 1985.

CACTUS Mental Health Survey – A global survey on mental health among researchers

Insights from this survey have contributed to sustaining an important conversation on researcher mental health and prompts research institutions to take tangible steps towards helping researchers thrive.
