A quick recap of K2A Academy 2021
April 11- April 30, 2021 | Online
The UN Agenda 2030 – Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) address the global challenges including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. To understand what sustainable development means and how to contribute to its advancement across South Asia, especially in the post pandemic context, is crucial.
The Knowledge 2 Action Network in South-Asia (K2A) funded by the Swiss universities Development and Cooperation Network (SUDAC) to curate an online academy with a special focus on SDGs. The 3-week online academy involved essential voices from South Asia and Switzerland, of academicians, decision makers, civil society, and importantly, from the grass root level. The program helped participants build skills to contribute, and take leadership in, the achievement of the SDGs with special focus on climate change, waste management and biodiversity.
Here are a few participants recalling their experience being a part of the 3-week academy.
