GPPN Annual Conference 2019: Innovative Solutions to the UN Sustainable Development Goals

 

GPPN (Global Public Policy Network) Conference 2019 was hosted by Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of SingaporeThis year again, GPPN invited students to identify an important policy challenge associated with the selected UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) below that can be addressed through creative applied solutions:
      • SDG 3: Good Health & Well-Being
      • SDG 7: Affordable & Clean Energy
      • SDG 11: Sustainable Cities & Communities
      • SDG 12: Responsible Consumption & Production
      • SDG 13: Climate Action
      • SDG 16: Peace, Justice & Strong Institutions
At the conference, in total, 31 teams / about 120 students from the 7 GPPN member schools, including 4 teams / 17 students from GraSPP had an opportunity to present their projects in the “3 minutes Elevator-Pitch competition” to the jury of the deans from each school. 8 teams were selected as finalists to move on to the day two, where they presented their creative solutions in greater depth, and the judges had the chance to give them feedback and questions.

The conference was also a great opportunity for GPPN deans and faculty members to meet and discuss various exciting topics and new ideas relevant to public policy higher education. Deans also attended the “Deans’ Roundtable” entitled “Global Public Policy in an Age of De-Globalisation and Nationalist Populism”.

In addition, the first cohorts of the GPPN SDG Professional Certificate Program (a year-long joint programme) presented their final project.

 *GPPN is a partnership between seven prestigious universities in public policy: The School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) at Columbia University, the Institute of Public Affairs at the London School of Economics and Political Science, School of Public Affairs at Sciences Po, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore, Hertie School of Governance, Fundção Getulio Vargas at the Escola de Administração de Empresas (FGV-EAESP) in Sao Paulo and the Graduate School of Public Policy at the University of Tokyo.
