“Translating national goals into global impact”
The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals have provided a widely recognised and meaningful framework for policymakers, investors, academics and activists to orientate their mission and purpose towards addressing global challenges. However, while the challenges – and ambitions to meet them – might be universally applicable, restrictive political, socio-economic and geographic boundaries exist that can obstruct the necessary translation of research into political application with real impact. At the inaugural THE Southern Africa Universities Impact Forum, leaders and subject experts from higher education institutions across the region will convene to share research, ideas and solutions to address and confront the key issues that affect the ability of higher education institutions to create a positive impact on society, with a special focus on SDG2 – zero hunger.
Share ideas and solutions to address key issues affecting higher education’s impact on society.
