COVID - 19 : Communiqué from the UoM

UoM Covid-19 Workplace Preparedness Plan 
(Restricted to UoM Staff and Students)

Blog post by Professor Dhanjay Jhurry, Vice Chancellor of the University of Mauritius. 

Nature’s Editorial of 2 Jan 2020 stresses that at the current rate, most of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will not be met by the set target date. One of the identified problems at country level is that these goals are competing with GDP goals. The Editor raises a very pertinent question: how can the 2030 Agenda be put back on the right path? It is my strong conviction that universities can and must play a more proactive and prominent role in embracing the SDGs. Why universities? Because universities train the decision-makers of tomorrow; they are viewed as independent; they can shape behavior and they champion ethics and values; universities can deal with complex problems through research and innovation.
