Delegates will engage with and learn of good practice in areas such as university outreach and community development, as well as participating in lectures, seminars and site visits themed around key sustainable development themes. Participants will spend the week working on a high-level group project, enabling delegates to begin building a personal and institutional contribution to the SDGs.
