AUF, ACU and IAU share virtual exhibiton for the HLPF 2020

This virtual exhibition is organized by the partner associations International Association of Universities (IAU), l’Agence universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF) & the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU). This page presents the partners’ work and link to related websites and resources.

The High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) is the yearly conference of the United Nations where governments, UN Agencies and civil society come together to discuss the achievements that have been made towards Agenda 2030.

This year, the event will be held virtually and will be dedicated to the theme: "Accelerated action and transformative pathways: realizing the decade of action and delivery for sustainable development." IAU holds the Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) which allows the Association to take an active part in this high level event. The Consultative Status is the highest status granted by the United Nations to non-governmental organizations.

This virtual exhibition is organized by the partner associations International Association of Universities (IAU), l’Agence universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF) & the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU). The partnership of ACU, AUF, and IAU accelerates the engagement of higher education for the Agenda 2030, as the associations together represent more than 2,000 global HEIs globally. They share their commitment to improving higher education for a more sustainable future and advocate for a Whole-Institution-Approach (WIA) to sustainability. Already at the HLPF 2019, the three partners collaborated and co-organized events, and released a joint statement on Higher education’s essential contribution to the SDGs. The associations jointly advocate for collaborative approaches to sustainability and are in the process of signing a formal memorandum of understanding (MOU).
