From our university, Dr. KATSUMI Mami UEA participated in parallel session of the annual meeting “Advancing the SDGs Through Higher Education: The Case of the UN Academic Impact (UNAI)” as an online panelist on 25th June (Sat).
She described distinctive education and research activities of our university centered on SDG9, such as initiatives for building infrastructure using resilient technologies and our unique practical education. In addition, she explained how our university is contributing to the achievement of goals other than SDG 9, such as solving water issues.
Moderator of this session, Mr. Sam Daws commented that it was inspiring to hear about the remarkable SDG efforts of Nagaoka University of Technology.
We will continue to strengthen the partnership with other UNAI members, and will promote activities that contribute to achieving the SDGs as one of the UNAI SDGs hub members.
