I heard a great quote the other month, a rif on some older quote: "There is no free knowledge on a dead planet."
Besides that, there is plenty of core activities whose stories can be told in the framework of the SDGs, because there is by nature a lot of alignment between them. And when they are, they will be even more powerful, getting more people onboard and further our mission beyond current plans. So it is a false dichotomy putting the core mission against the SDGs when they probably will be synergistic instead.
