AC21 Student World Forum 2022


The program will be held virtually from 18-31 July, 2022 and hosted by Nanjing University in collaboration with the AC21. The Academic Consortium for the 21st Century (AC21) was established in 2002 as an international network comprised of educational, research and industrial organizations throughout the world. The University of Adelaide is one of AC21’s 14 university members.

This year’s theme is “Urban Sustainability under the Covid-19 Attack”. The Forum will be led and delivered by experts in the field from NJU. Guest speakers include representatives from UN-Habitat and international partners of Nanjing University.
