SDGs in Universities: Get Started

VU International News and Reviews No. 100 October 30 2017

October 2017

The UN’s Sustainable Development Solutions Network has published a guide for universities to speed up their involvement: “Getting started with the SDGs in universities”.

Although it was produced with a specific focus on universities in Australia and the Pacific, it contains valuable information for other HE institutions as well. It looks not only at teaching and research but also at the university organisation and its external leadership role in its community. It offers a simple 5 step approach to SDG engagement and provides tools for mapping exercises, stakeholder workshops, business case development for SDG engagement, and reporting models. In addition, it offers a wealth of case studies – from an Australian/Pacific context, naturally.
