SDG 4.7: The Path towards Quality Education

This discussion, hosted by the Global Challenges University Alliance (GCUA 2030), will address the pivotal role of higher education institutions in providing all students not only with the knowledge they need in order to contribute to the implementation of Agenda 2030, but also with the skills and competencies necessary to make a meaningful contribution to future societies. Using target 4.7 as a starting point, presenters will highlight concrete examples from GCUA 2030 institutions, a global network of partners with a common vision of contributing to sustainable, global development.
