2nd GUNi International Conference on Sustainable Development Goals and Higher Education

2nd GUNi International Conference on Sustainable Development Goals and Higher Education

From : Thursday, March 5 2020
To : Friday, March 6 2020

Societies need a global transformation and a clear commitment towards sustainable development, the reduction of social inequalities and the improvement of living conditions at local and global level. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a response to this need: a universal, ambitious, sustainable development agenda involving education, health, environment, industry, justice, governance, cities among others.

Challenges such as health and demographic change, food security, quality education for all, secure and clean water, green and efficient energy sources, climate change, and inclusive and secure communities need the engagement of the universities responding at global and local levels. On one hand, contributing to the global challenges of the world (summarized by the SDGs) and on the other hand, helping the economic, social and cultural development of its nation, region or society.

It is in this framework that GUNi adopted a strategic line of action around the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs with a focus on partnerships, knowledge and research. After a successful first edition of the International Conference on SDGs: Actors and Implementation, GUNi will hold a second edition of the GUNi International Conference on Sustainable Development Goals and Higher Education, to be celebrated in Barcelona on the 5th and 6th March 2020.
