ACU Commonwealth Summer School 2016


The Sustainable Development Goals: what role for universities?

Saturday 13 - Saturday 20 August 2016
University of Rwanda, Kigali, Rwanda

The Commonwealth Summer School was first instigated by the ACU in 2011, to provide a forum for high quality students from every corner of the Commonwealth to come together and discuss multidisciplinary issues of global importance.

A key element of the summer school is its desire to mix local/regional students with those who may have never had the opportunity to leave their own regions.

In 2016, it will be held at the University of Rwanda, and will focus on the United Nations' recently agreed Sustainable Development Goals.
