In an age where many nations are turning inward, it is more important than ever for academics to use their knowledge and expertise to reach across borders and build a better world.
It is with these values in mind that Academics Without Borders is proud to host Reaching Across Borders, Building a Better World – The impact of Canada’s colleges and universities on global development.
Early Bird rates have been extended to Tuesday, October 9th at 11:59pm. Don't miss this chance to save $100 on a full conference pass.
Also be sure to reserve your room at the Omni Mont-Royal before the cut-off date of October 11th (6pm) – rooms are available at the Conference rate of $195.
Experts from Canada and around the world will explore the core role that academia has to play in social innovation, cross-country collaboration, global development, and the economic and social well-being of all the world’s citizens.
Postsecondary institutions based in the developing world can play a key role in creating healthier, wealthier, and more just societies. Canadian universities and colleges are important partners in this process, working hand-in-hand with these institutions, as well as governments, schools, and private/public sector institutions to build a better world for all. It is with these efforts in mind that Reaching Across Borders, Building a Better World will bring together faculty, government officials, corporations, NGOs, students, and postdoctoral researchers from around the globe to learn from these collaborations in order to generate innovative new solutions.
Reaching Across Borders, Building a Better World will include structured workshops that will provide training in the core skills of international academic partnerships and facilitate the co-creation of new ways to address challenges facing academic institutions across the globe.
