WASD is very pleased to invite you to the official launch of its SDGs Universities Initiative (SDGsUNi). SDGsUNI aims to help Higher Education Institutions (HEI) (universities, colleges and research institutes) play a critical role enabling their countries to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (SD). The conference aims to bring together HEI, societies (academic/professional) and individuals from across the world in a global forum to collaborate and reconnect with the discourse of SD. The conference will introduce a variety of fundamental perspectives on the role of HEI to help re-building the global economy post Covid-19 global pandemic and more importantly in the Developing Countries. The conference program will be published two weeks before the conference date but for a sample program structure, please check our previous conferences.
