PIE seminar on SDGs in Capacity Building: making it real

Event date 13 Jun '19 10:00 - 15:00 GMT (UTC +0)
Event location Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam • Mauritskade 64, Amsterdam, 1092 AD, Netherlands

The Platform for International Education (PIE) aims to contribute to global and local sustainable development, both in countries and regions where partner institutes are based and in the Netherlands. In doing so PIE aligns with the SDGs targeted by the UN – particularly SDG 4 ‘Quality Education’ and SDG 17 ‘Partnerships for the goals’.

As higher education institutions working in international capacity building projects and partnerships strengthening education for inclusivity, equity and lifelong learning for all, this seminar will allow us to:

  • discuss the challenges and dilemmas of operationalising the SDG principles in the face of complex contexts, inequalities and bureaucratic frames in which we work;
  • share inspiring ideas and practical experiences on how to operationalise the SDG principles in our daily work
