AUC, UNDP Collaboration Advancing Sustainable Development Goals
AUC has partnered with the United Nations Development Programme in Egypt to promote knowledge exchange, sustainability, student engagement and entrepreneurship as well as support the UN Sustainable Development Goals in Egypt.
The collaboration is dedicated to getting involved on campus through programming such as hackathons and boot camps, sustainable campus initiatives and student-led outreach activities. Emphasizing evidence-based approaches to policy and programming, the partnership will use the expertise of AUC’s labs and centers. It will also offer students practical experience, mentorship opportunities and internships to prepare them as future leaders.
“We aim to tackle key policy and development topics, conduct action-oriented research and foster knowledge-sharing initiatives,” said AUC President Ahmad Dallal. “By aligning our efforts with Egypt’s national priorities, we aim to accelerate progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals, leaving a lasting impact on the communities we serve.”
The partnership signals a commitment to using the combined expertise, resources and networks of both organizations to create lasting and positive change for Egyptian citizens while contributing to the nation’s overarching goals. “Together, we’ll work toward a future of progress, innovation and sustainable impact,” said UNDP Egypt Resident Representative Alessandro Fracassetti.
