Higher education (HE) plays a key role in achieving the 2030 Development Agenda and related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Leaders of universities and other higher education institutions, academic and administrative staff, students and other HE stakeholders are driving the processes towards a more sustainable present and future. The Higher Education and Research for Sustainable Development (HESD) global portal is a tool developed by the International Association of Universities; it provides access to actions and initiatives developed around the world to promote sustainability. Make sure you are part of it!
