The HLPF is the annual conference of the United Nations where governments, UN Agencies and civil society come together to discuss the achievements that have been made towards Agenda 2030. This year the HLPF, taking place from 7-16 July, is dedicated to "Accelerated action and transformative pathways: realizing the decade of action and delivery for sustainable development”.

As a global university association advocating for the key role that higher education plays in achieving sustainable development, the ACU will take an active part in the debates again this year and is co-organising a series of virtual events, together with our partners and members.
