Invite-only virtual roundtables

Tackling the Sustainability Skills Gap

in partnership with and leading up to the
GSDC convened by THE black.png

What are the roundtables?

These virtual roundtables are designed to kick-start important high-level discussions ahead of Times Higher Education’s Global Sustainable Development Congress (GSDC), taking place 10-13 June 2024 in Bangkok, Thailand.

Who is attending?

Each roundtable is bringing together roughly 15-20 senior leaders from higher education and business, alongside a small number of diverse, passionate students.

What is the length and format?

Each roundtable lasts ~75 minutes, and starts with a short keynote provocation to stimulate discussion (building on a one page briefing note provided in advance). Following the provocation, there are breakout group discussions for the senior attendees that report back to a closing plenary.

What are the outcomes?

Whilst the roundtables will operate under the Chatham House Rule, insights from each roundtable will be captured through short (optional) participant interviews and a summary article. Key ideas will feed directly into the Leaders Summit, Green Skills Summit and general panels at the GSDC.

Schedule: April-May 2024

Each roundtable focuses on a sub-theme related to the broad theme of Tackling the Sustainability Skills Gap.
