WDF Universityfor SDG2030


WDF University for SDG2030 has been established with a mission to educate & train farming and other populace to increase their income by use of modern methods using broadcasting & Communication technologies and also make an effort to introduce high level technologies such as IOT, Robotics, UAV to automate and spread knowledge in the fields of education, agriculture, healthcare, livelihood generation and removal of ignorance.


The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by International Community in September 2015, seek to address issues relating to hunger, poverty alleviation, democratic governance and peace building, climate change and disaster risk, and economic inequality. The SDGs and targets are intertwined. Almost all the SDGs relate to sustainable agriculture. The pathway of linkage is either direct (like in the case of SDG2 on ending hunger and achieving food insecurity) or indirect like SDG 8 on promoting sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth (which can only be achieved if agricultural growth encompasses marginal and small farmers, women farmers etc.). Many countries of the world have started including these into their national development frameworks, action plans and budgets. The 2030 Agenda and its enshrined goals, embracing the economic, social, and environmental perspectives of sustainable development provide a historic and promising opportunity for the well being of the world’s future generations and the planet.

Radio Jockey courses are conducted throughout the country.

Who can become Radio Jockey: Some people are naturally gifted with a flair for entertaining people and communicating with them. Others need to cultivate it. But whatever the background of a person, with a little bit of grooming and acquaintance with the media, a person can easily nurture the talent latent in him or her. Radio Jockeying is a talent based field. The most essential factor for a Radio Jockey is a good voice with the ability to modulate as per the occasion. Apart from that, an RJ should have a clear diction, accurate pronunciation, flare and fluency in the language. They should be able to control the pitches of their voice and learn to use them to the best effect. Another distinguishing characteristic to become a successful radio jockey is the speed of response, good sense of humour, individuality, creativity, spontaneity and an intensive knowledge of music. Successful RJs have the ability to twist and turn their speech according to the situation. Staying updated is very important for a radio jockey. An RJ needs to keep track of the happenings in and around the city. People will enjoy listening to an RJ, if they can sound different on the show. So qualities like mimicry, local dialects and comedy or humour items will help the RJ to carry on their shows.

Eligibility: # Even though no formal educational qualification is required, a degree or at least plus two is generally a pre requisite.
