Universities, as historical and heritage institutions, are committed from their own essences to the sustainable development of humanity. Only with this vision is it possible to interpret the social, scientific and extension relevance of our undergraduate and postgraduate programs. The International Congress of Higher Education University 2020 will be enriched by the experience of researchers discussing the Sustainable Development Goals, based on topics derived from this Agenda.


We invite them to discuss, among other topics, the contribution of substantive university processes to the Goals, their integration into university training and teaching, the creation of a global citizenship around the SDGs, the integration of the Agenda 2030 in sector strategies and policies and cooperation initiatives for sustainable development. Our event will also be a space for concentration and follow-up of the declaration and action plan of the Regional Conference on Higher Education for Latin America and the Caribbean CRES 2018.


Students, teachers and managers of the institutions of Higher Education will meet in Havana from February 10 to 14, 2020, in a relevant, pleasant and inclusive appointment.
