The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the worlds ‘to do’ list for the next 13 years. Each of the Global Goals is extraordinarily important, and taken together, present the education sector with a potent agenda of unprecedented scope and significance.
The 2017 EAUC Annual Conference theme Global Goals: Local Action recognises the critical role universities and colleges across the planet have to play in finding and implementing solutions to climate change and realising the SDG’s on a local level within their communities and beyond.
Featuring keynotes from Chair of the Environmental Audit Select Committee, Mary Creagh MP and a panel session with Maria Adebowale - Schwarte, Director of the Living Space Project and Clore Social Leadership Environment Fellow and Julie Hirigoyen, CEO of the UK Green Building Council, as well as more than 35 workshops all streamed around the SDGs, there will be a variety of content so that delegates can tailor their conference experience to suit their job role and experience level. Further keynotes will also be announced shortly.
