Joint UNICA-IAU webinar: Higher Education Leadership Practices and Leaders for a Sustainable Future | 8 June 2021
A joint UNICA–IAU (International Association of Universities) webinar
2021 is a critical year for higher education and Agenda 2030, including the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). With the world facing multiple crises, universities are the key to healthier, greener, fairer and more inclusive societies. To show a sustainable way forward, we need strong engagement from the leadership at universities and strong partnerships for the Goals. This webinar will debate how can we take charge, together, for a more sustainable future.
Drawing on the vast experience and expertise from Members of the IAU and the UNICA network, the webinar will demonstrate the crucial role of the academic leadership and the middle management level in mainstreaming sustainable development. The invited speakers will share how leadership best practices for SD and in particular the SDGs have led to successful impacts in their institutions. Besides applying a Whole institution approach, the role of student leaders and bottom-up processes for sustainability initiatives at universities also are taken on board.
