Higher education in sustainable development

Ethiopia hosted a conference on 8 July to reflect on EDULINK projects' contribution to social and economic development in African, Caribbean and Pacific States.

Participants debated key challenges for Higher Education in achieving Millennium Development Goals, particularly the role of cooperation, lifelong learning and teacher education in promoting sustainable development.

The conference brought together representatives from Higher Education Institutions that are funded under EDULINK’s 1st Call for Proposals. In addition, several recognised Higher Education experts were invited. Representatives of Higher Education Institutions in ACP States and in Europe, as well as higher education/development associations and NGO’s were also welcome to participate.
