Higher Education Sustainability Initiative Global Event (HLPF 2019 Side Event)
10 Jul 2019 -  The Higher Education Sustainability Initiative (HESI) event will explore how the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is changing the way higher education institutions are working and how they engage critically with the SDGs, with a specific focus on SDG 4 (Quality Education), 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth) and 17 (Partnership for the Goals).

The event will seek to generate a new commitment and vision for the kind of impact that partners are collectively having on this agenda. It will look to build on the work of the SDG Accord – see more at www.sdgaccord.org – which has five core areas of work including:

1. Teaching sustainable development across all disciplines of study, including through online based platforms,
2. Encouraging research and dissemination of sustainable development knowledge,
3. Green campuses and supporting local sustainability efforts,
4. Engaging and share information with international networks,
5. Engaging universities in local and national government, as well as city development projects.
