Higher Education Summit 2020

Together with the Universities of Bern and Lausanne, the COPERNICUS Alliance and td-net, saguf is organising the "Higher Education Summit 2020" from 31.8.-2.9.2020. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the conference will be held virtually. Among other things, virtual workshops (solution rooms, co-creative labs), a virtual poster market plaza and even virtual excursions are planned, whereby the focus will be on interaction among the participants. The keynote speeches will be pre-recorded and accessible so that exciting discussions can take place live. The presentations, discussions and workshops will focus on "transformative learning for sustainable development", a topic that saguf and especially the working group education for sustainable development have been working on intensively for several years!

How can we assure quality and transformative learning for sustainable development?

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.
