The Jean Monnet Sustainable Development Goals Network is delighted to announce a series of workshops for RMIT graduate students and early career researchers (broadly defined) aimed at making sense of the emerging place of the SDGs in universities. The first workshop will be held on Tuesday, 7 May 2019, from 9.30am-2.00pm. Researchers interested in making the SDGs more central to their work are particularly encouraged to apply.

Workshop 1 will address the ‘troubles and opportunities’ with SDG engagement and research. Interested research students/early career researchers should send a 100-word summary of your research and a 100-word bio to emma.shortis@rmit.edu.au by Monday, 15 April 2019. Applicants will be notified of the outcome by Thursday, 18 April.

Please pass on to your HDR students and colleagues who might be interested.
