CONVERSATIONS ON SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT ON THE AFRICAN CONTINENT

DATE:
07 – 09 December 2021
VENUE:
TBA
Conference Overview

The idea that human societies must live and meet their needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs has necessitated Sustainable Development (SD) discussions across the world. To accelerate SD in Africa, and actualise Africa’s priorities in relation to SD, there is a need for an integrated approach in addressing the situation amongst academics, institutions of higher learning and key stakeholders across Africa. Thus, the proposed conference, titled Conversations on Sustainable Development on the African Continent will bring together several participants to discuss key issues related to SD by putting Africa in the centre of the discussion. How Africa can harness the greatest importance of SD will be the thrust of this conference. 

 

Please join us for what promises to be an exceptionally lively, engaging conference with many opportunities for both networking and professional development. The conference sub-themes include:

  1. Sustainable development in the era of COVID-19
  2. Higher education priorities for sustainable development in Africa
  3. The centrality of African research to sustainable development
  4. Locating sustainable development in teaching and learning activities
