The SDWatch Initiative

SDWatch.eu is an independent, non-profit and student-led project initiated and managed by students and alumni of the LL.M in Sustainable Development at the University of Milan. It is supported by the Department of Italian and Supranational Public Law of the University and part of the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network.

The idea of a student-led academic platform to support the growth of the LL.M Sustainable Development Community at the University of Milan, flourished in the mind of Students in the very first class of the programme (2015-2017).  ​

The concept of SD Watch developed in close cooperation between the various stakeholders of the programme, including teaching staff, student volunteers of all years and external partners. 

In May 2018, after several months of consultations and development, the SD Watch platform was launched officially.

The following sections introduce the actors behind this project, its timeline and objectives. 

THE BOARD

Meet the people behind SDWatch: Our board is composed of 3 Professors (ADVISORS) and 4 Students (EDITORS), all of which are selected among the LL.M’s teaching staff, its enrolled students as well as alumni.
