Understanding how HEIs engage with sustainable development to further promote the achievement of the 2030 Agenda objectives is one of the key priorities of HESD at IAU. The data gathered will be analysed and presented in a comprehensive outcome: The 3rd Global IAU HESD Survey report.

This survey is the third iteration of the IAU Global Survey on HESD. The first survey was conducted in 2016, the report “Higher Education Paving the Way to Sustainable Development: A Global Perspective” was published in 2017. The second survey was conducted in 2019; the report was published in January 2020 under the title: "Higher Education and the 2030 Agenda: Moving into the ‘Decade of Action and Delivery for the SDGs’".

Furthermore, the outcomes of the survey will help to showcase the development regarding SD in the higher education section to foster good practices in sustainability at institutional level. Initials results will feed in the events organised by IAU for the UN High-Level Political Forum 2022, and a first draft of the report will be presented in October 2022 at the IAU 16th General Conference.

The survey has been developed thanks to support provided by
