WEBINAR: Practical approaches to mapping university contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

13 April, 2017  |  SDGs  ,  Upcoming Events   

1:00-2:00 pm AEST (other time zones)

Universities have a critical role in helping the world achieve the new UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through their research, teaching, operations and community leadership.

Many universities are already working to strengthen their contribution to the SDGs. A key first step in this process is to map how existing university activities – such as research expertise, courses and institutional policies – align with and contribute to the SDGs. Whilst the mapping concept is simple, the execution can be complex.

This webinar, co-hosted by SDSN Australia/Pacific and the Australasian Campuses Towards Sustainability (ACTS), aims to help universities get started with this process.

Please join us to hear from a panel of experts who have carried out SDG mapping in their own universities. Drawing on their experiences and learnings in undertaking the mapping, the panel will discuss the range of approaches available, their benefits and uses, and practical guidance and tips on how to carry them out.

Speakers will include:

  • Leah Dudley – Macquarie Sustainability, Macquarie University
  • Dr Tahl Kestin – SDSN Australia/Pacific Network Manager (Moderator)
  • Caitlin Leahy –  Institute for Sustainable Futures, University of Technology, Sydney
  • Dr Susan Pepper – Monash Sustainable Development Institute, Monash University
  • Andrew Wilks – Sustainability Office, Victoria University of Wellington
