While running a Google images search on "sustainability", the colour green dominates. Most of us automatically associate the concept with the environment. Among the search engine results, however, there are still plenty of images that remind us that sustainability is also economical and, more importantly, social. A more sustainable world is also a fairer world, and vice versa.

Let's discuss sustainability goal #10, "Reducing inequalities", from the perspectives of public health, communication and informatics, together with Marta Fadda, lecturer and researcher at USI Faculty of Biomedical Sciences; Lorenzo Cantoni, Professor at USI Faculty of Communication, Culture and Society, Director of the Institute of Digital Technologies for Communication; and Monica Landoni, lecturer and researcher at USI Faculty of Informatics.

The series: #Fucine (forges). Perspectives for shaping today and tomorrow.

Some of the significant challenges of the modern world and the role of knowledge in understanding and facing them. Starting from the UN 2030 Agenda goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs), we propose a series of ten articles in collaboration with Corriere del Ticino on the occasion of USI's 25th anniversary. With the guidance of USI experts, we present and ponder the areas of knowledge in which our University is active - architecture, communication, law, economics, computer science, medicine and biomedicine, public health, computational science, data science and the humanities - and their role in forging ideas, perspectives and visions to help shape the present and the future. Each article will begin with a UN objective and three angles: one will offer a more in-depth snapshot, the other two complementary "flashes".
