Venue Bucharest, Romania

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals are a universal call for action to shape a better future for all. Universities have a key responsibility to tackle complex societal challenges of our times, manifested in these Goals. The 7th ASEF Rectors’ Conference and Students’ Forum invites Asian and European higher education and student leaders to share how their organisations contribute to policy development and take action towards the Agenda 2030 and to get inspiration from their peers’ strategies.

The 7th ASEF Rectors’ Conference and Students’ Forum offers a creative space for knowledge exchange on implementing a whole-of-institution approach on sustainable development, teaching the next generation of leaders and thinkers to act sustainably and ethically; conducting research that leads to positive change in our world; and engaging communities outside the walls of academia. The conference also explores how university and student leaders from Asia and Europe can work together towards a “future we want”.   ARC7 explores how higher education can take action  towards achieving the sustainable development goals on three different levels:
  • Taking action  at home— SDGs as Core Pillars of University Governance
  • Taking action  at  community  level— SDGs  as  Drivers of University Social Impact
  • Taking action  at the international level —  SDGs as a  Catalyst to  Reorient  Internationalisation
