University of Hull Sustainable Development Goals Conference 2022

A two-day conference taking place on Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 July

Welcome

The United Nation’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, represent an internationally recognized framework for universities to work towards the global common good. This conference brings together academics working across the University to discuss how their research and teaching is contributing to this objective.

In addition to an exciting series of international keynotes and research panels, there is a dedicated session for early career researchers, and a participatory workshop. As a platform for exchange this conference provides an opportunity for everyone across the University to learn more about sustainable development from an international perspective, and to participate in a conversation about how the University can contribute to a better world.
