International Conference on Sustainable Development Goals: Actors and Implementation

17 Sep 2017 - 9:00am a 18 Sep 2017 - 5:16pm
GUNI (Global University Network for Innovation)

Engaged universities with the development and competitiveness of their nations and, at the same time, with the global challenges, means to generate advanced knowledge, to create innovative products and processes, to train leaders and professionals and to provide services to enterprises, public administration and non-governmental organizations.

Balancing the global with the local, universities play a key role in the achievement of SDGs. A radical transformation is needed, and the role of universities in this process cannot be a passive one. Universities are called to become a trigger of change, standing at the center of the debate and moving actors towards action. Only through the effective collaboration between governments and public agencies, universities and research centers, enterprises and NGOs the implementation of the SDGs will be a reality.

The International Conference on Sustainable Development Goals: Actors and Implementation wants to be a leading international meeting for the analysis and debate between all national and International actors involved on Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), especially universities, governments, cities and public agencies.
