The Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla (BUAP) (Meritorious Autonomous University of Puebla) is co-organising the International Association of Universities (IAU) 2019 International Conference, which will take place from 13-15 November 2018 in Puebla, Mexico.
The conference is dedicated to ‘Transforming Higher Education for the Future’. At the time of rapid technological, social, economic and political changes worldwide, IAU believes that it is important to rethink the future of higher education and find viable ways of moving forward for all. The conference will be an opportunity for Members, partners and the wider higher education community to come together and exchange ideas, reflect on the most pressing questions, reconnect and form new partnerships.
Recognizing that higher education is exposed to a multitude of challenges in increasingly complex societies, this conference will, among others, consider the impact of technological advancements, and discuss the responsibility of higher education in the pursuit of sustainable development in a world where populations are increasingly impacted by the consequences of climate change.
Higher education has an essential role to play in proposing solutions as well as highlighting the ethical dimensions and social responsibility in relation to these transformations. Research can inform decisions-makers and community engagement can enable inclusive and innovative solutions to address societal challenges. As the global association of higher education institutions and organisations, we seek to generate a meaningful dialogue and mutual understanding about advancing higher education for sustainable societies.
