There is great potential in finding a way all institutions can easily and openly communicate, collaborate, and share knowledge and experience on regional, national and international levels. Such synergy around the shared language of the SDGs could unlock highly diverse and productive sector and cross-sector collaborations. This interactive session held discussion on a potential SDG-based international Charter, and other possible ways in which the national and international tertiary education community can take collective action and leadership for the goals.
