Das Überthema Weniger Ungleichheiten (Sustainable Development Goal, SDG, 10) zieht sich als Leitfaden durch alle Veranstaltungen. Über SDG 12 - Nachhaltiger Konsum und Produktion - wird in Beiträgen zu Elektronikindustrie, der fairen Computermaus und der bekannten Elektroschrottmüllhalde in Ghana nachgedacht. Darüber hinaus geht es u.a. um den Umgang mit den SDGs in autoritären Regimen und den Austausch von Studierenden aus China und Salzburg, die Bedeutung von Zahlen und Statistiken in Bezug auf globale Ungleichheiten und die aktuelle Lage Österreichs zur Erfüllung der Ziele. Eine Lesung mit Bachtyar Ali über sein neuestes Buch bietet einen literarischen Zugang. 

Zur Eröffnung am 5. November und anlässlich des Jubiläums "40 Jahre Südwind" halten Rektor Dr. Hendrik Lehnert, Landesrätin Mag. (FH) Andrea Klambauer und Bürgermeister-Stellvertreter Bernhard Auinger Ansprachen. Der Eröffnungsvortrag mit Dr. Eva Gerharz (Hochschule Fulda) behandelt Entwicklung und soziale Ungleichheit: Herausforderungen und Handlungsalternativen. Die Referentin gibt einen Überblick zum Thema und zeigt Möglichkeiten auf, was der/die Einzelne dazu beitragen kann.
