on Sustainable Development Goal #12

May 6 – 7, 2019 at Luther College at the University of Regina


Luther College and the University of Regina welcomed a number of delegates to an international conversation about how higher education can contribute to the advancement of responsible consumption and production. 

Sustainable consumption and production is about promoting resource and energy efficiency, sustainable infrastructure, and providing access to basic services, green and decent jobs and a better quality of life for all.

This day and a half conference focused on opportunities for mutual learning, networking and building opportunities for collaboration.  Representatives from higher education in Saskatchewan were joined by international representatives of the International Association of Universities (IAU) Cluster on Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) #12 – Advancing Sustainable Production and Consumption.

The Cluster on SDG #12, led by the University of Regina and Luther College, is part of a larger initiative of the International Association of Universities to engage Higher Education throughout the world in achieving and supporting the SDGs and Agenda 2030.
