The Geneva Tsinghua Initiative
The world’s first comprehensive education program for the SDGs
For the second edition of the Geneva Trialogue, University of Geneva collaborated with UNITAR, the UN Institute for Training and Research, and XuetangX, China’s largest MOOC platform, to convene thought leaders, education innovators and decision makers from educational institutions, international organizations and the private sector.
What is the Geneva Tsinghua Initiative?
The GTI provides innovative education opportunities, for students and professionals, that address in a practical, hands-on way the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). During the different programs, students spend part of their time in Geneva, working directly with the International Organizations there, and part in Beijing and Shenzhen, two of China’s most dynamic and entrepreneurial environments.
