The IAU Cluster on HESD (Higher Education and Research for Sustainable Development) promotes the role that Higher Education Institutions globally have to fulfil in order to achieve the SDGs and Agenda 2030. Universities are to address the SDGs, which themselves impact on and transform universities.

The Cluster encourages a holistic approach to the SDGs, focusing specifically on the whole institution approach. The IAU Clusters brings HEIs from all continents together and encourages them to develop joint initiatives and synergies toward the achievement of the SDGs and to build a Worldwide Higher Education Community.

The University of Bologna is a Leader Institution of SDG 5 Gender Equality, thanks to the many initiatives and projects we have implemented in order to raise awareness at all levels of this important need of our society.
