On 27 – 29 January 2020, STRINGS co-investigator Dr Tommaso Ciarli attended this Wilton Park and Association of Commonwealth Universities dialogue. The event brought together those who are leading the strategies of Universities and their international outreach, with academic and other experts on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The event explored the ways in which the Higher Education sector can actively engage with and contribute fully to the delivery of the SDGs. Key questions included:

  • How can universities be a major delivery agent of the SDGs?
  • How can the range of universities’ contributions with partners to sustainable development be recognised and incentivised?
  • How can the HE sector act more as stewards for the SDGs and ‘articulate the common good’ beyond teaching, research and outreach?
  • How does HE advocate its role on the international stage?
