Tuesday 27 August, 1 pm – 2:30 pm (submit an EOI by 22 August)
One of the key ways universities and Higher Ed Institutions can contribute to the SDGs is by empowering and mobilising their student body towards this agenda. This session aims to share experiences from the sector in the region on how universities can raise awareness, understanding, and action by students on the SDGs, and explore the opportunities, challenges, and emerging best practices. The session will specifically focus on student engagement activities outside the formal curriculum, such as co-curricular activities, extra-curricular activities, campus initiatives, activities with clubs & societies and volunteering activities.
We would like to kick the session off with a few short presentations by the participants on SDG student engagement activities they have undertaken. If you would like to present an example of an engagement activity from your institution, please include this in your EOI.
