The Higher Education Sustainability Initiative (HESI) Roundtable will build on the discussions of the HESI Special Event at the UN High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF). By listening to the perspectives of different stakeholders in higher education, reflecting on what needs to be done, and working together, collective voices and inputs can redesign the future of higher education.
The objectives of this event are to understand the work of the various stakeholders in redesigning higher education for sustainable development, articulate the contributions that each of the stakeholder individually (I), together (we), and collectively beyond HESI (all of us), and to reflect on a common pathway and next steps to support this vision.
