Fully Funded 7th ASEF Rector’s Conference and Students’ Forum (ARC7) in Romania has opened the application for 51 ASEM partner countries. The 7th ASEF Rectors’ Conference and Student’s Forum (ARC7) is co-organised by the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) and the National University of Political Studies and Public Administration (SNSPA), between 11-14 May 2019 in Bucharest, Romania. ARC7 will be held for the first time in conjunction with the 7th Asia-Europe Meeting of Ministers for Education (15-16 May 2019, Bucharest, Romania) and participants will have the chance to meet senior officials and education ministers of 51 Asian and European ASEM partner countries.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals are a universal call for action to shape a better future for all. Universities have a key responsibility to tackle complex societal challenges of our times, manifested in these Goals. We invite Asian and European higher education leaders to share how their organizations contribute to policy development and take action towards the Agenda 2030 and to get inspiration from their peers’ strategies.
ARC7 offers a creative space for knowledge exchange on implementing a whole-of-institution approach on sustainable development, teaching the next generation of leaders and thinkers to act sustainably and ethically; conducting research that leads to positive change in our world; and engaging communities outside the walls of academia. The conference also explores how the university and student leaders from Asia and Europe can work together towards a “future we want”.
