Education for the SDGs can take many different forms, from information campaigns, to co-curricular action projects, interdisciplinary introductory units, disciplinary curriculum integration, and dedicated degree programs. In this session, we will hear about the experiences and learnings of HEIs in our region from implementing different approaches, and discuss the implications for scaling up institutional action.

One of the most important contributions HEIs can make to achieving the SDGs is to provide all students with the knowledge, skills and mindsets to address complex sustainable development challenges through whatever path they choose in life.
This ongoing series aims to provide a forum for the higher education community in the Aus/NZ/Pacific region to share, discuss and connect across all disciplines around good practices, challenges and opportunities for scaling up education for the SDGs in our region.
The series is jointly organised by SDSN AusNZPac, ACTS, and PRME AusNZ.
