Higher Education Institutions (HEI) have a fundamental role to play in raising awareness on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) and improving knowledge, skills and mindset to address social, economic and environmental challenges for a sustainable future. To this aim, Sulitest provides institutions around the world with an internationally recognized and locally relevant tool to measure and improve sustainability literacy for the academic community: students, administrative staff, and academic leaders. This powerful tool could be used by Higher Education Institutions to design effective strategies and put in place mechanisms to tackle learning and contribution on sustainability issues and solutions.
During this Webinar, participants will have the opportunity to discuss on:
- The role of HEIs in raising awareness of the SDGs.
- The Sulitest tool: scope, rationale, objectives and applicability to HEI’s.
- The utility of results and how they can be used at institutional and programme level
- Concrete examples of application.
