The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) capture complex global problems that are going to require cross-sector collaboration joining industry, education, government and practitioners. Universities have a special role to play in facilitating these conversations and cooperation, but also unpacking the implications of the problems and the solutions for diverse stakeholders if we are to advance equity for all. This session looks at promising opportunities from a DEDI lens for strengthening our impact on the UN SDGs.
