The United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is one of the most ambitious and vital global agreements in recent history. Educational institutions have a leading role in helping society to achieve the Global Sustainable Development Goals through leadership, research, teaching and learning, campus operations, and community service. As living laboratories of transformation and innovation, the academic engagement, leadership, commitment, partnerships, and exemplar models are crucial to empower the next generations, advance SDGs' progress, and foster a resilient and equitable future. Come, let us be the change!
PACT2030 brings together like-minded leaders, founders/heads, and chancellors of academic institutions, policy makers and the government to engage all the intelligent forces for creating a better world. As Mahatma Gandhiji said "In a gentle way, you can shake the world", so PACT2030 is the culmination of several discussions between United Kingdom founded QS I-GAUGE agency in India and academic institutions. PACT2030 was established as a formal initiative in November 2021. QS I-GAUGE is the first secretariat for this initiative with the support of several partners.
