Accelerating Action for the SDGs: the Report of the 3rd IAU Global Survey is out


The International Association of Universities (IAU) has launched the report of the third global survey on Higher Education and Research for Sustainable Development (HESD), which was conducted in 2022. In total, 464 valid responses from higher education institutions in 120 countries were collected. The findings show that higher education and partnerships are essential to address the global challenges identified in the UN Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to build a more sustainable future together.

Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) are in a unique position to foster the engagement with sustainable development (SD) taking a whole-institution approach to Teaching and Learning, Research and Community Engagement.

UNIMED counts Sustainable development among its priority areas and has contributed to this research, sharing the survey among its member universities.
