BALTIC UNIVERSITY PROGRAMME SPRING STUDENTS’ CONFERENCE 2017


BALTIC UNIVERSITY PROGRAMME SPRING STUDENTS’ CONFERENCE 2017
9-13 April 2017, Kiev, Ukraine

Baltic Region Collaboration in Agenda 2030 Implementation
My Contribution in Achieving Sustainable Development Goals 2030

The goal of the Conference is to contribute to the implementation of the Agenda 2030 in the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) by means of increasing awareness, clarification of the vision of Sustainable Development Goals 2030 for the Region, strengthening networking and partnership, and building competences for peace-keeping and sustainable development in the Region.


After approval of UN Agenda 2030 and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, many countries started integration of SDGs into national policies and strategies. Clarification of the vision of the importance and ways of achieving of the SDGs at national level as well as at the level of institutions and organizations within countries is prerequisite of successful implementation of Agenda 2030. Participants of the Conference – students from BUP countries – will discuss dimensions of the SDGs, create the vison of the Baltic Sea Region in 2030, identify challenges on the way to BSR-2030, propose approaches and instruments for implementation of the Agenda 2030 and determine personal contribution. As an option, the Program includes one-day trip to Chornobyl Zone in order to understand how to address technological and environmental safety challenges on a way to sustainability of human society.


Presentations, group discussions and group works will provide learning opportunities for participants, create platform for exchange of ideas and experiences, and will result in strengthening BUP network for sustainable development.
