Universities’ Responsibilities to Society

Webinar - 29 September 2021 - 15.00 CEST

The first of the principles set out in the new Magna Charta Universitatum 2020 (MCU 2020) is:

"Universities acknowledge that they have a responsibility to engage with and respond to the aspirations and challenges of the world and to the communities they serve, to benefit humanity and contribute to sustainability."

MCU 2020 goes on the say that to fulfil their responsibility universities require ‘a reliable social contract with civil society.’

But what does that look like in practice in the many different countries and cultures from which MCU signatories come?

The purpose of this webinar was to start answering this question to give insight and inspire
universities to consider further their social contract with civil society.

Held on 29 September, it attracted registrations from 68 different countries and over 140  actually participated in the event.
