Online workshop 1: The United Nations 2030 Agenda in the Higher Education sector - Unite!

Higher education Institutions can support and contribute to the implementation of the Agenda 2030 and the achievement of the related 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). Areas of contribution can include teaching, research, organizational governance, culture, and operations.

Time: Thu 2021-11-18 14.00

Language: English

Lecturer: Arch. Chiara Genta, PhD fellow, Politecnico di Torino and Università di Torino.

There will be two workshops on the theme of how universities can contribute to the UN Agenda 2030, these workshops are organized by Politecnico di Torino, in collaboration with Unite!
The first workshop is "The United Nations 2030 Agenda in the Higher Education sector".
Duration: 90 minutes
No. participants:28 (4 participants from each Unite!-partner university)

The first workshop aims at introducing the contribution of universities in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030 Agenda and at identifying possible areas of intervention.

It is recommended that you sign up for both workshops (as a priority participant) but it is also possible to attend one session only.

Participation is welcome from all administrative staff, if useful, from academics too.

The workshop may be relevant for a large and diverse audience as we are more and more asked to identify the SDGs within the university activities like drafting project proposals and reports; cataloguing projects; defining the content of the academic offer. The topic may be relevant especially for staff working in the:

  • sustainability/green office
  • academic programme management
  • international project management
  • research project management
  • data management for the university ranking
  • communication (if SDGs need to be highlighted)
