UGPN Conference May 2024: Securing a Sustainable Society: new approaches and inclusive practices

Between 13th and 15th May 2024, as the current Chair of the UGPN, the University of Surrey is honoured to host this year’s UGPN Annual Conference on its campus in Guildford, UK.

Under the theme of “Securing a Sustainable Society: New Approaches and Inclusive Practices”, the conference will bring together all three member universities to showcase our commitment to sustainability, share best practices and connect academic colleagues to collaborate and foster impact and innovation globally.

Join us to network with our partners, meet potential collaborators, and learn more about upcoming research funding opportunities within the UGPN network and beyond. Event highlights include:

  • Research workshops on “Planetary Health” and “Technology for an Inclusive Society” to develop joint projects and prepare funding proposals for the RCF fund and external grants.
  • A UGPN Academy session to support colleagues in designing innovative formats for global experiential learning, including opportunities to engage with the next UGPN COIL Academy.
  • A UGPN showcase celebrating impactful projects and insights on building successful partnerships in the network.
  • A Sustainability showcase for partners to share institutional best practices and strategic sustainability initiatives for academic and societal impact.

As the UGPN moves into its next phase, we invite our partners and all students and staff at Surrey to join us for this event, celebrate the network and develop future activities for a partnership that is truly transformative and impactful – in academia and society – to achieve a healthy planet and sustainable living for all.
