Geneva Trialogue

In 2016, responding to the UN General Assembly’s call for collaborative partnerships towards sustainable developmnt for all, the University of Geneva launched the Geneva Trialogue : a one-day event gathering academic, private sector and multilateral stakeholders to discuss knowledge and learning tools, platforms and initiatives for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

At the Geneva Trialogue, decision makers from these three circles gather to deepen their understanding of the issues, trigger reflection, and proactively formulate proposals on how academia, international organisations and the private sector can support and transform the world of SDG education together.

The goal of this event, in the spirit of SDG 17, is to inspire new partnerships that can reach millions of learners of all ages, and help such networks tackle the Global Goals in impactful ways.
