Sustaining the world is no longer an academic interest, or a matter that has been discussed only among statesmen in world forums. It has now attracted the attention of corporations and institutions of higher learning. Individuals and organizations are increasingly aligning themselves with the seventeen (17) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) formulated by the United Nations. Besides the classroom lectures and in-class discussions, the awareness of SDGs could be increased by involving students of higher learning in SDG-related projects. The learning-by-doing theory is being operationalized by requiring the undergraduate students to identify suitable target facilities and service providers on campus, conduct a study and provide recommendations to make these targets SDGs friendly. This paper outlines the process that student groups went through to formulate their SDG proposals based on their fieldwork on campus. It also presents select proposals that reflect their alignment with multiple SDG goals. Finally, the paper provides some suggestions for other institutions of higher learning to consider in contributing toward more sustainable planet earth.
