SDG2: Zero Hunger Consortium

The SDG2:Zero Hunger Consortium began in 2020 as part of the University Global Coalition (UGC) Decade of Action Initiative. EARTH University and the University of California, Davis (UC Davis) were invited by UGC to co-chair this effort. In 2021-22, additional universities joined the consortium. Currently, the participating universities are:

University of California, Davis (UC Davis) (USA)

EARTH University (Costa Rica)

McGill University (Canada)

Newcastle University (UK)

University of São Paulo (Brazil)

The consortium is always open to expressions of interest from other universities.

The SDG2-Zero Hunger Consortium collaborates in several areas. The consortium has participated in joint events to share expertise and discuss emerging areas of work on Zero Hunger topics. The consortium is also exploring potential joint research projects.

In November 2022, the consortium launched its first International Student Challenge on Zero Hunger. 20 teams of students from universities around the world are participating in the challenge, which will conclude with student videos on the topics and solutions in April 2023.

The final videos will be posted on the UGC website soon!
