The pandemic has made it abundantly clear: the gravest threats we face today transcend national boundaries, are inextricably linked, and demand joint, knowledge-based actions in response. Partnership-oriented university-level research and teaching have a crucial role to play here. CDE and its longstanding partners have refined effective, transformative approaches to help solve current sustainability crises and train the next generation of change agents. This policy brief outlines lessons from CDE’s long-term experience in tackling shared challenges and addressing inequalities through inclusive, globe-spanning research and education.
