Universities in action for the UN 2030 Agenda, 18 January 2022

19 July 2021

RUS, Rete delle Università per lo Sviluppo sostenible, in partnership with the Italian Pavilion at EXPO 2020 DUBAI and the Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development (ASviS), organise the Forum "Universities in action for the UN 2030 Agenda" on 18 January 2022.

The Forum will be on hybrid mode, online and on the premises of the EXPO 2020 Dubai Italian Pavilion (depending on the pandemic situation) and will gather international higher education institutions and students to discuss and imagine the role of universities within UN Decade of Action centred on the three Ps: people, planet and prosperity.

It aims to stimulate culture and actions for sustainability leaving the stage to the visions of the young generations for the university of the future and to showcase the best practices already underway by universities around the world for the three Ps.

To participate, there are two types of calls:

  • Higher education institutions can send a video describing their best practice on one of the following topics: people, planet, prosperity. The best videos will be showcased in the worldwide arena.
  • Students can send short videos with their ideas on the future of higher education institution. The best videos will be edited into three different collage-videos focusing on people, planet and prosperity.

The deadline in both cases is 15 September 2021.
