Academic Impact: e-Discussions on Poverty and Education

Academic Impact: e-Discussions on Poverty and Education

Academic Impact is a global initiative that aligns institutions of higher education with the UN in the areas of human rights, literacy, sustainability and conflict resolution.

2-8 March 2011 | University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

The critical role of higher education in economic and social development and as a foundation for world peace is widely acknowledged. Only lacking is the resolve and action of academic leaders around the world. By formally endorsing the ten principles in the Academic Impact, institutions make a commitment to use education as an engine for addressing global problems.

The University of KwaZulu-Natal has been chosen as as one of ten global hubs to help take forward the governing principle on 'Addressing Poverty' and Youth.
