The HESI (Higher Education Sustainability Initiative) was created by a consortium of UN entities, including PRME, in the run up to the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (RIO+20) in 2012.
This year, in advance of the XXI Session of the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC (COP21), HESI will organise an event to take stock of progress made since Rio+20 by sharing best practices and lessons learned, discuss the roles and responsibilities of higher education institutions in business and technological innovations around climate change adaptation and mitigation and encourage new or enhanced commitments by HESI members, particularly around the facilitation of academic and scientific inputs into the formulation of climate policies and compose a message and a set of policy recommendations to be presented to the UNFCC Secretariat at COP21.
