Higher education is key to realising SDGs

6 October 2020

Dr Alex Awiti, Vice Provost of the Aga Khan University in Kenya, writes that the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a call to action to launch the planet on a sustainable path. Universities have responded admirably through the creation of the University Global Coalition, which seeks to support the delivery of SDGs through education, research and service. Universities have an obligation to educate and inspire students to engage, develop innovative ideas that generate sustainable solutions for local communities, civil society, businesses and governments.
