Varsities of G-7 countries form alliance

International Edu News

A new U7 Alliance has been formed with the aim of tackling some of the world’s most pressing challenges from climate change to inequality.

The Alliance is made up of universities from the G7 countries - Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, UK and the US. In creating the U7 Alliance, the world’s leading universities recognise the fact that they have a unique responsibility as global actors, in fields well beyond academia, to take concrete action both together and within their institutions for a local, regional and global impact.
Universities are uniquely placed to bring together research, expertise and best practices, which can positively affect local, national and international communities.
The alliance will initially tackle five major global challenges - the key role of universities in a global world; climate change and cleaner energy; inequality and polarised societies; technological transformations; and community engagement and impact.
