Going global for sustainable development


To enhance students’ leadership qualities, intercultural communication skills and understanding of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), the University has launched the ‘Go Global’ programme. Students are expected to serve the local community to learn about different societies and develop their appreciation of cultural diversity.


One group visited Singapore recently to work towards the clean water and sanitation, sustainable cities and communities, and life below water SDGs. Another focused on the no-poverty goal and learned about the lives and needs of disadvantaged groups in South Korea.
