This presentation will report on the findings of an exploratory study that investigated whether and to what extent the UN Sustainable Development Goal of promoting decent work globally has already been integrated into the academic study programs for future OSH professionals in a number of European countries. Based on this data, recommendations are made on how future business and social leaders can be better empowered to address the global challenges.
