IAU invited its Members and the global higher education community to consider the Importance of Intercultural Learnign and Teaching. The Conference discussed how higher education must lead by example in fostering cooperation, understanding and appreciation of diversity at local and global level with a view to generating new knowledge and new approaches to issues of global and local relevance.
Universities have a key role to play in establishing a sense of interconnectedness, in building intercultural competencies, and in nurturing intercultural understanding and collaboration through teaching and learning, collaborative international research and community engagement. Such approaches will contribute to building global citizenship and social responsibility within and beyond national borders. The IAU 2023 International Conference explored how universities around the world promote and support intercultural learning and dialogue, the impact geopolitics is having on this goal, and the broader implications it has for our society.
