Sustainable Development Goals


Colegio Alemán in Zaragoza is a responsible entity with an RSA (Aragon’s Social Responsibility) seal of approval

In 2018, the German School Cultural Association had long had the desire and latent need for Social Responsibility to have an increasing weight in its organisation and management.

This concern led to working on the School’s strategy from the field of Social Responsibility so that, in the same year, the school decided to opt for membership in the Plan of Social Responsibility in Aragon of the Government of Aragon, obtaining the RSA Seal as a Responsible Entity.

Since then, the Association has decided to draw up its first Responsibility Report, which it has not failed to do in any given year (last Responsibility Report)

Given the importance of Social Responsibility in the Association’s Strategic Plan, it was a logical step for the Association to be concerned about the inclusion of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in its day-to-day activities. As stated by the United Nations, promoter of the SDGs: “The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal call to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of people all around the world.”

Therefore, the Association advocated linking the activities carried out with the SDGs, thus collaborating to promote communication, training and the impact of companies on the SDGs, as proposed by the Spanish Global Compact Network. The relationship between the SDGs and the activities carried out by the Association during the last academic year is shown below.
