Virtual Global Forum

In December 2018, IU became a founding member of the U.S. chapter of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), an alliance of U.S. universities working together to create global sustainable societies.

Collaborations and the open exchange of ideas are the only way to make progress towards our common goals. This year, our international partners will hold parallel competitions with each institution choosing their own winners. Then we will come together for an online forum where all participants are invited to discuss their research and ideas. Selected winners of each institution will be asked to present their posters.

The global forum is scheduled for January 24, 2021 to collectively celebrate the International Day of Education.
