Plenary 1, University Leadership for the Decade of Action
03:00 – 04:00 UTC
The session will showcase innovative approaches that universities in the Asia/Pacific region are implementing to increase their societal value and impact on the SDGs, as well as the challenges and opportunities to accelerate these actions and make them part of a new “business-as-usual” for universities. The session is partially in response to the challenge made by President Mike Crowe of Arizona State University at a recent event of the UN Higher Education Sustainability Initiative, that universities need to change the way they operate and be more connected to the community to have real impact.
