Advancing the SDGs in higher education takes a variety of forms, and several networks work to connect partners in this effort. How can these higher education SDG-focused networks, with the same essential mission, both differentiate themselves in this space and support and build upon the work of their allied networks? This session features participants from several global networks focused on the SDGs in higher education in a facilitated discussion. Through conversation with these leaders and session participants, we ask the question of how networks can most effectively partner to tackle the complexity and interconnectedness of the SDGs through the lens of SDG17: Partnerships.
