This week we’ve been avidly following the High-Level Political Forum (#HLPF2019) conference taking place in New York, and one clear message has come through. For the world to achieve the UNs 17 Sustainable Development Goals, higher education is essential, and without it we will not meet the 2030 targets.
For our final Friday G&T of the summer, here is a quote from Dr Joanna Newman, the first female secretary of the Association of Commonwealth Universities, during her talk at the conference. Higher education never felt so good.
The Friday G&T will be taking a summer holiday and relaunching on your air waves on Friday 6 September. We’ve loved bringing you short pieces of writing to give your week a little lift, and if you want to tap into more inspiration take a look at the Friday G&T Gallery. Have a great summer!
