WORLD UNIVERSITIES SUMMIT 2024

The World Universities Summit 2024 brings together leaders from almost 100 universities across the world to discuss critical issues facing the sector. The overarching theme, "UNIVERSITIES OF THE FUTURE: GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT," highlights the indispensable role of universities in shaping a more just and sustainable future.

The summit will delve into a broad range of themes including equity in education, fostering global partnerships for peace and prosperity, promoting gender equality in academia, combating misinformation and disinformation, advancing open science and collaboration, exploring the balance between STEM and social sciences education, celebrating women trailblazers in research and leadership, balancing university autonomy with accountability, and examining the role of universities in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

The WUS is driven by a shared goal of uniting universities in a collaborative spirit. We strive to pave the way for a future where higher education is seen as a powerful instrument for positive change. Hopefully, the universities will be able to lead the path towards a more fair, thriving, and eco-friendly world for everyone involved and WUS can act as a catalyst for initiating the discussions leading to this change.
