The SDG Accord: the University and College Sector’s Collective Response to the SDGs (en anglais)

The International Association of Universities is a founding endorsing partner of the SDG Accord.

The IAU has committed to a new global initiative that will help embed Sustainable Development Goals across post-16 education.

Announced at the World Congress on Environmental Education (WEEC) held in Vancouver, ‘The SDG Accord’ is the university and college sectors collective response to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established by the United Nations.

The SDG Accord reflects the key role educators have in creating a new generation that can and will balance people, planet and prosperity. It aims to inspire, celebrate and advance the embedding of the goals in our institutions through education, research, leadership, operations, administration and engagement activities. The SDG Accord is also a commitment from one institution to another that they will share the learning they accrue on the topic with each other both nationally and internationally and annually report on their progress.

A sector overview of progress will then be presented annually at the global progress review by the UN High Level Political Forum.

The SDG Accord is facilitated by the Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges (EAUC), and is endorsed by 30 supporting organisations already from across the world.
