The Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges (EAUC) has launched the Sustainable Development Goal Accord.
The purpose of the SDG Accord is twofold:
~ First it is to inspire, celebrate and advance the critical role that education has in delivering the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the value it brings to governments, business and wider society.
~Secondly, the Accord is a commitment learning institutions are making to one another to do more to deliver the goals, to annually report on each signatories progress and to do so in ways which share the learning with each other both nationally and internationally. An objective is that sector SDG reporting metrics will be presented at the annual UN High Level Political Forum.
Over the last 9 months a growing number of the worlds University and student sustainability networks have collaborated to create a unifying collaborative global mechanism to help step up to the challenge and the opportunity of the SDGs.
It represents a rare and powerful opportunity for WEEC delegates to support and learn from each other and raise the profile of education in delivering the SDG’S and a sustainable future for us all.
