Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals – Higher Education Institutions and Sustainable Development

Virtual Eastern Standard Time Zone, GA

The event series "CIFE Talks SDGs" raises awareness of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established by the United Nations (UN) in 2015 and offers a forum to discuss their implementation. Every semester, CIFE will dedicate three public events to one particular SDG and explore its connection to current EU policies and initiatives. The event series is mainly targeted at students and young adults as they are the ones most concerned about urgent global challenges.

The kick-off-event focuses on SDG 17 – Partnerships for the Goals. It examines the ways how universities and higher education institutions can cooperate on sustainability issues and implement green strategies within their own institutional structures.

Presenter: Susann Heinecke, Programme Director of the trilingual Master of Advanced European and International Studies – European Policy and Governance at CIFE; Free registration required
