The Centre for Development and Advanced Learning (CENDAL) has partnered with Connected Development (CODE) to hold the first Universities SDGs Summit in Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.
The Summit which is scheduled to hold in February will promote educational excellence around the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.
It will host students and professionals to draw more awareness on the UN SDGs. It will feature panel discussions and paper presentations from Vice Chancellors and other dignitaries in the academia and other institutions.
Awards would also be issued to students and other institutions for their contributions to the Global Goals.
The summit is to hold annually in different universities, leading up to the next review of the United Nations. Every year, a compendium of the summit will be published to have students concern, communiques from the summit panels and suggestions on how the government and the UN can further advance achievement of the goals. The compendium will also serve as a referral document for public consumption.
