Smart global development? Higher education within a global development agenda.

In September 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the 2030 Development Agenda, comprising 17 Sustainable Development Goals. As the international community now focuses on defining the strategies to achieve these goals at the global and local levels, it is an opportune time to consider the role of higher education in advancing these shared development aims.

On April 13 – 14, 2016, the Smart Global Development conference will explore the role of higher education in advancing sustainable development goals. Join global experts, thought leaders and practitioners for interactive sessions, enlightening talks, and inspiring debates on strengthening the capacities of universities to tackle critical development challenges.
