What is the place and role of Higher Education in the new UN international agenda for education?
From Higher Education for EFA (HEEFA) to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4: Building on Achievements
The International Association of Universities (IAU) and Jaume Bofill Foundation organized in Barcelona the International Meeting “From HEEFA towards SDG4: Building on achievements”. This event took place on 8 and 9 October 2015 at the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site in Barcelona, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The aim of the meeting is twofold. It both builds on the success of the IAU HEEFA (Higher Education for Higher Education for All) project, acting as its concluding event and it bridges the outcomes of HEEFA to Sustainable Development Goal 4 (Education) and the UNESCO Framework for Action that is linked to it. It provided an opportunity for the higher education community to discuss the place and role of higher education in the international agenda for education.
Consequently, the International Conference convened representatives of the IAU international HEEFA Reference Group, as well as university leaders and other higher education stakeholders.
