Sustainable Universities Day

Also students are expected to make a significant academic contribution to sustainable development. What does this mean for Swiss higher education institutions? What role are they expected to play in the context of the 2030 Agenda and what meaningful contributions can they make to Sustainable Development? These are the questions at the centre of this year’s Sustainable Universities Day. More information
