Opportunities for International Higher Education: Keeping the Future Human - 2021 CBIE Ontario Regional Meeting on 7-11 June 2021

The 2021 Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) Ontario Regional Meeting will focus on the future of internationalization and global engagement in Ontario and across Canada in light of COVID-19. Register for the conference from 7-11 June 2021.
If you are interested in a panel discussion on Internationalization and the SDGs, join York University´s UNESCO Chairholder Charles Hopkins and other distinguished panelists next week on 9 June 2021. The SDGs call for action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. Higher education is explicitly mentioned and has a responsibility to transform the SDGs into into measurable, sustainable impacts and to transform themselves into institutions that model sustainability in their own teaching and practices. How can we embed the SDGs into internationalization in higher education?

In January 2021, York University, in partnership with the International Association of Universities, the Canadian Commission for UNESCO, and Okayama University Japan, hosted the Sustainable and Inclusive Internationalization Virtual Conference and more than 500 participants from 58 countries adopted the 2021 Toronto Declaration on the Future of Sustainable and Inclusive Internationalization in Higher Education. Share your commitment for internationalization and sign the 2021 Toronto Declaration. You can also watch the recordings of all sessions on the post-conference website.
