Join RDI Network, the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific, and the Australian Research Management Society (ARMS) as we explore Partnerships under the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 17. The afternoon networking session will open with a panel (to be announced) before networking over a late afternoon tea.
SDG 17 aims to: Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development. This event will bring particular focus or “Partnerships for the Goals” bringing particular attention to Item 17.16 and 17.17.
17.16 Enhance the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development, complemented by multi stakeholder partnerships that mobilize and share knowledge, expertise, technology and financial resources, to support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals in all countries, in particular developing countries.
17.17 Encourage and promote effective public, public/private and civil society partnerships, building on the experience and resourcing strategies of partnerships.
Universities across Australia are increasingly appointing roles from business development to strategic partnerships that are instrumental in how Australia as a nation will respond to international priorities. By understanding how our work can enable the SDGs and leveraging our networks we can improve outcomes at all levels.
Please extend this invitation to anyone who may be interested, should be interested or likes to talk in acronyms.
(and why are SDGs important? This year Times Higher Education University Impact Rankings were released – they are the only global performance tables that assess universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. SDGs allow universities to assess how they are helping change the future of the world.)
The Panel will confirmed closer to the date.
