Hyderabad: A national seminar on “Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):
Building Future India” was organised at University of Hyderabad (UoH).

Speaking after inaugurating the seminar, Prof Appa Rao Podile,
Vice-Chancellor UoH emphasised the need for implementation of SDGs and its
relevance in the Indian context.

Podile also highlighted the gaps and challenges in policy formulation and
implementation. He suggested the need of ‘changing mindsets’ for the
successful implementation of SDGs, as policy intervention alone cannot be
fruitful without public co-operation.

Prof K Raja Mohan Rao, Seminar Co-ordinator, and Head of the Centre for the
Study of Social Exclusion and Inclusive Policy in his address stressed on
the need for an interface between the policies for environmental
sustainability and economic prosperity in order to achieve social
sustainability and justice. He also stressed the need for deliberations
between academicians, policy makers and other stakeholders.

Dr Vamsha Tilak, former head, Department of Public Health SLNS Degree
College delivered an insightful talk on issues related to the health
sector. He advocated the achievement of sustainable development through
enduring success.

Delivering key note address Prof Gilvan Muller de Oliveira, UNESCO Chair,
Language Policies for Multilingualism advocated the inclusion of language
and multilingualism as an 18th goal in order to have access to knowledge
and education in indigenous languages. He said that sustainable development
cannot be achieved without overcoming language barriers and hence, proposed
the inclusion of an 18th goal related to language issues
