Digital Presentation of EGU2030 Report "Knowledge-Driven Actions: Transforming Higher Education for Global Sustainability"
The Global Independent Expert Group on the Universities and the 2030 Agenda (EGU2030) was launched in October 2020 by UNESCO in collaboration with the University of Bergen. The Expert Group’s mandate was to reflect on the necessary knowledge and transformations required for higher education institutions to contribute to the achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The result was a one-year collaboration of 14 experts from around the globe, whose report will be officially launched at the World Higher Education Conference (WHEC2022) to be held 18-20 May 2022. Their report is entitled: Knowledge-driven actions: Transforming higher education for global sustainability.
This digital event is not only a celebration of the work of the EGU2030, but an occasion to critically engage in discussions on the role of higher education institutions in achieving the 2030 Agenda. One of the preliminary aims of the report is to inspire and invigorate such discussions among the higher education community on why and how they can contribute to the SDGs, and not shying away from conversations on the challenges of doing so.
This event is an opportunity to do just that. In sharing about the EGU2030 report, we can begin to critically engage with its recommendations and implications. The aim is to encourage discussions and generate critical reflections about this report and the contributions of higher education institutions to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda.
This event is part of the digital SDG Conference Bergen on 9-11 February 2022. If you’d like to register for the full conference, visit this page: https://invitepeople.com/events/f8a4ed98a281c
