Facilitating Higher Educations´ Engagement with the SDGs

Seminarium

Welcome to a forum that brings together different stakeholders from University of Gothenburg and Chalmers, and creates a platform for sharing knowledge and experience around the SDGs. The forum presents a wide range of areas including: GMV´s work and strategic plan with the SDGs, different tools to work with and integrate the SDGs into education/research and also sharing existing exemplary practices across the two universities. The forum invites both students and staff in both universities.

The United Nations´Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is one of the most important global agreement in recent history. The agenda, with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at its core, is a guide to tackling the world¿s most pressing challenges-including ending poverty and bringing economic prosperity, social inclusion, environmental sustainability and peace and good governance to all countries and all people by 2030.

The SDGs have strong relevance to universities and academic sectors more broadly. Education (teaching and learning process), research, innovation, leadership (organizational governance/operations) and external relationship are integral in helping society address global challenges. Universities, with their broad remit around the creation and dissemination of knowledge and their unique position within society, have a critical role to play in the implementation and achievement of the SDGs. Arguably, none of the SDGs will be achieved without active engagement of universities.

Through their current actions in education and research, the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology have been taking some initiatives to engage with the SDGs. However, for the SDGs to be successful at a wider scale, there is an urgent need for the two universities to play a leading role and accelerate their actions and engagement with the SDGs.

To this end, the Gothenburg Centre for Sustainable Development, GMV, has planned for a forum that brings together different stakeholders from University of Gothenburg, GMV and Chalmers, and creates a platform for sharing knowledge and experience around the SDGs. The forum presents a wide range of areas including: GMV´s work and strategic plan with the SDGs, different tools to work with and integrate the SDGs into education/research and also sharing existing exemplary practices across the two universities. The forum invites both students and staff in both universities.
