Deadline for Abstract Submission: 5 August 2022 and Paper Submission: 5 September 2022
As a World Leader in Sustainability Conferences and Forums, WASD invites senior academics and executives including universities’ Vice Chancellors from across the world to meet and share their experiences about new ideas and learn about all aspects of the world Sustainable Development (SD) and the United Nations 2030 Agenda for SD and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). WASD therefore, provides various platforms for senior universities’ executives to discuss issues relating to the role and relevance of universities and research institutions to the contemporary discourse of countries’ sustainable inclusive knowledge-based development such as:
- the role of universities in supporting and enhancing the process of economic and social development in their country;
- identify all major obstacles that universities face in their countries including any governments components and most importantly how can these obstacles best be overcome; and
- what is the new role(s) of universities in the post Covid-19 era.
The conference aims to bring together various Higher Education Institutions (HEI) (universities, colleges and research institutes), societies (academic/professional) and individuals from across the world in a global forum to collaborate and reconnect with the discourse of the UN Agenda 2030 and the 17 SDGs.
The conference will introduce a variety of fundamental perspectives on the role of HEI to help re-building the global economy post Covid-19 global pandemic and more importantly in the Developing Countries. The conference is a golden opportunity for selected HEI that have played, and continue to play, a key role in transforming their teaching and research for the implementation of the UN’s Agenda 2030 and its 17 SDGs. We invite all participants to participate in this prestigious conference and showcase their courses, research projects, services and/or initiatives to the whole world, including top experts in the field of SD, Diplomats from various embassies in the UK, Ministers, the UN and high government officials and policy-makers, company directors, etc. The conference program will be published two weeks before the conference date but for a sample program structure, please check our previous conferences.
WASD is also very pleased to to official launch during the conference its latest initiative, SDGs Universities Initiative (SDGsUNi). SDGsUNi aims to help HEI play a critical role enabling their countries to achieve the 17 SDGs of the UN Agenda 2030 for SD.
