IAU organised a virtual session on HigherEd and SDGs on 13 September

The 9th World Sustainability Forum took place virtually from 13-15 September 2021. IAU organised the session on Higher Education and Research – How universities around the world engage with Sustainability and build partnerships for the SDGs. The session focused on SDG 3, 4 and 17. Next to IAU Secretary-General Hilligje van’t Land and President Pam Fredman, presentations by experts included Karolinska Institute, UNU-IAS, Makerere University and Rhodes University. The key message of the session was that leaving no one behind — the central promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development — depends on ensuring education for all. In closing, Hilligje van’t Land (Secretary-General, IAU) stressed the need to continue connecting in different ways in order to build bridges globally and to improve cooperation mechanisms together.
