Join us for the Virtual Higher Education Summit 2020 (#HES2020), an international event addressing the question “How can we assure quality and transformative learning for sustainable development?” We will meet from 31 August – 2 September 2020. The event is co-organised by the COPERNICUS Alliance, saguf, td-net, the University of Bern, and the University of Lausanne.

Higher education institutions in Europe acknowledge the urgent need for rapid and radical transformation towards sustainable development and agree that higher education has an important role to play in this process. But how can this role be assumed, what values should guide the process, what should be transformed, how, and who should lead and who be engaged? Suggestions and models exist, but they remain niches, often nested at institutional levels that are disconnected from relevant larger-scale, standard-defining quality and policy bodies
