The 3rd World Higher Education Conference (WHEC2022) brought together relevant stakeholders to define and prepare a roadmap for a new era of higher education. This roadmap, conceived as an open, living document, aims to respond to the challenges faced by humanity and the planet, with special attention to the global disruption created by the COVID-19. It looks at both the higher education systems (norms, policies, structures, stakeholders) and institutions (universities, specialized entities, networks).
WHEC2022 offered new knowledge, innovative ideas creative alliances, and produced an enlarged and reinvigorated coalition of the global higher education community in favour of the 2030 Agenda for Development and beyond.
The WHEC2022 was organised by UNESCO with the generous support of the Government of Spain, the regional Government of Catalonia, the City Hall and the Regional Authority of Barcelona and in partnership with GUNi/ACUP.
The UNESCO World Higher Education Conference took place from 18 to 20 May 2022 in Barcelona, Spain.
