Life Science Universities and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) / GCUA - Global Challenges University Alliance

Invitation to the opening event and Panel discussion on 16. April and Keynotes 3 and 4 on 17. April 2018 at BOKU

Our planet faces severe challenges: extreme poverty, hunger, land degradation, water pollution, biodiversity losses, energy demand and climate change. Increasing inequality and conflicts threaten social cohesion and democracy. To address these challenges, the UN has framed its vision “Transforming our World” into 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Universities worldwide have a great responsibility to contribute with their research inputs and higher education to the process for sustainable transformation.

In this workshop international experts, from policy and science, will discuss, how “Life Science Universities can support the implementation of the SDGs.”


Registration is open until 8. April, 2018!
