The Universities and the SDGs

The Universities and the SDGs

WORKSHOP: How can universities, as part of a system of education and knowledge development, contribute to the promotion of the SDGs?

1 February 2017 | UiB Global, University of Bergen

The SDGs are given a universal validity, differing from the previous Millennium Development Goals. Thus national commitments drive the process. Still, the primary goal is to contribute knowledge about how we must interact across borders to meet these global challenges without leaving anybody behind, and by sharing the burden equally.

The University of Bergen have given top priority to three areas of research: Marine, Climate and Global Challenges. There is a clear overlap between these areas as they all must focus on the SDGs to be relevant to our common discourse of change.

This workshop is the University of Bergen's first concerted effort to promote the idea that universities must do more to meet the global challenges, by supporting the implementation of the SDGs.

The workshop will debate how universities can contribute by taking initiatives partly justified by goal number 4, to "Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all".
