As part of the events prior to the 3rd UNESCO World Higher Education Conference that will take place in Barcelona from May 18 to 20, 2022, UNESCO IESALC will carry out a consultation for Latin America and the Caribbean that will collect the voices of the different groups of interest related to higher education (HEI leaders, academics, students, governments, rectors’ conferences, university associations/networks, employers, multilateral organizations, etc.) on ten key issues for higher education.
For the consultation, UNESCO IESALC will carry out ten webinars between October 2021 and February 2022. Its themes will revolve around the ten key issues that the World Conference will address. Each webinar will consist of presenting an expert on a specific issue and two panels, one with representatives of the government sector and the other with the main stakeholders related to higher education.
One of the thematic issues includes "Higher Education and the SDGs".
