Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) have the ability to shape the international agenda and drive collective action to achieve global peace and prosperity. However, realizing such a vision requires systemic transformation and a holistic whole-of-institution approach, where education stakeholders, partners and learners work together to construct a common vision of sustainability, with sustainable development goals as endpoints. By embedding, integrating and implementing SDGs in an institution’s core operations and plans, decision-making and policies, research, teaching, learning and governance, HEIs can become powerhouses for sustainable transformation.
Prepared by the International Relations Professional Learning Community of CBIE, this webinar will summarizes the activities and initiatives adopted by nine Canadian higher education institutions to advance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
