WTUN have initiated a series of UN SDG focused academic webinars

The Shibaura Institute of Technology (Japan) were pleased to host the first workshop which focused on SDG13: Climate Action ‘How Novel Materials Can Disrupt Climate Change’.

It had over 35 attendees and was a fantastic opportunity to consider collaboration.

July 2020

WTUN ran a series of webinars to allow members to share best practise about how technology universities have maintained their key services during the time of COVID-19 which has impacted staff and students across the globe.

This was an opportunity for members and non-members to discuss the actions they had to take the lessons they have learnt in this unprecedented time, which involved many institutions having to implement large amounts of change in a short space of time. Non-WTUN members are also welcome to join the events.
