Hamburg Sustainable Development Summit (HSDS) 2017

31 August 2017: Registration Deadline!

The Hamburg Sustainable Development Summit (HSDS) 2017, organized by the Center for a Sustainable University at the University of Hamburg, focuses on aspects of sustainable development at Higher Education Institutions. A special focus is given on the contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) within education, research, governance, operation and outreach initiatives.

The HSDS conference is initiated for the first time in 2017 to offer a broad international network platform for sustainability initiatives and projects. The summit aims at setting new horizons for collaborations, uses innovative network formats and invites sustainability researchers and agents to be part of the global community to foster sustainable development, in Higher Education Institutions as well as in society in general.

Key topics to be addressed:

  • Sustainability at Higher Education Institutions (HEI): How is sustainability integrated into education, research, governance, operation and outreach? What good practice examples and cases can be identified for “whole institution approaches”? How can institutional sustainability strategies be developed and implemented?
  • Contribution of Higher Education Institutions to global SDGs: What impact do SDGs generate on HEI and vice versa?

26 – 27 September 2017
