GCU: Government College University (GCU) here on Thursday launched a campaign “Know Your Sustainable Development Goals” for mainstreaming United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in teaching and learning experiences across the university.

The campaign, jointly initiated by the university’s Environment Protection Society (EPS) in collaboration with the Green Box, is aimed at supporting and accelerating local and national capacity of key stakeholders, including teachers and students, to implement the SDGs.

In his keynote address at the workshop held in connection with the campaign’s launch, GCU Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Asghar Zaidi talked about the SDGs and their relevance for the elderly people. He highlighted the current and future population aging issues in Pakistan in comparison to the rest of the world.

The VC said GCU faculty members were well-positioned to provide learners with skills to think through complexity, transcend paradigms, learn through dialogue and communication, engage in deep reflection, develop worldview and values sensitivity, and assess when activities support or detract from achieving the SDGs – as well as other important skills, knowledge and vocational expertise which could help create more effective SDG implementers and would also help accelerate the implementation of all the SDGs.

The one-day workshop was attended by faculty members and staff from across all academic disciplines in the university and they were provided with the knowledge, skills and motivation to understand and address the UN SDGs building on in-depth academic or vocational expertise to implement SDG solutions through teaching, learning and research processes at the university.
