UNITAR University Network for Sustainable Development (2021)

The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) launched a platform for Universities around the world with a focus on the SDGs.

The University Network for Sustainable Development is a platform about learning, exchanging, and partnering to be SDG learners today and SDG leaders tomorrow.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for everyone. Pursuing the quest of SDGs is a common global effort, and universities are unquestionably actors in order for the SDGs to materialize in the future.

The Network allows universities joining to be informed about other universities’ achievements on SDGs learning activities, to create partnerships among one another, as well as with UNITAR, while improving their educational system with exclusive access to official UN learning material, documentation and resources around SDGs and Sustainable Development.

The network was launched during the opening session of the SDGs Learning, Training and Practice workshops at the UN High-Level Political Forum 2021. See also here:
