Higher Education institutions are uniquely placed to drive new forms of responsible consumption and production needed to achieve pressing SDG 12 targets as well as other SDGs. Autonomous universities act as independent communities capable of combining diverse forms of knowledge with local expertise and global HE partners to reshape themselves and the communities they serve. This integration promotes campus self-sufficiency, resource abundance, and a culture of service while advancing resilient student and community livelihoods in the face of growing risk and uncertainty. Panellists will explore institutional and policy changes (such as sustainable procurement), new materials and transformative technologies, efficient and effective resource use, and efforts to create greater circulation. Collaboration so far through the global SDG 12 university cluster will also be explored.

This webinar with the IAU HESD Cluster on SDG 12 is an additional side event to the United Nations High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) 2021, taking place virtually and in New York 6-15 July 2021. SDG 12: Ensure Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns is one of the Goals under review this year.
