Another great GPPN Conference!
Teams from all seven GPPN Schools were in Singapore last February to participate to the annual conference of the Global Public Policy Network (GPPN). The students competed with their concrete solutions for meeting the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
The rotating conference was hosted this year by Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore. The student teams presented prototypes of their innovative, applied SDG solutions to a jury consisting of the leadership of the seven GPPN member universities. The topics selected for this year's edition were: good health and well-being; affordable and clean energy; sustainable cities and communities; responsible consumption and production; climate action; peace, justice and strong institutions.
The conference was also the opportunity for GPPN university presidents and deans to meet and discuss topics relevant to public policy higher education around the world.
In addition, the first cohort of GPPN SDG Professional Certificate candidates presented their projects. The certificate is a one-year training programme for international collaboration on the SDGs, and includes students from the GPPN member universities.
