25 January 2021
LSBU has signed up to the United Nations Habitat UNI partnership with over 100 universities worldwide. The partnership promotes cooperation between universities to tackle global issues including climate change, urban regeneration, safety in cities and gender inequality.
LSBU has subscribed to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and embedded them in our corporate strategy to deliver equality, environmental sustainability, education, health and economic prosperity.
To mark the occasion and cement the relationship with Habitat UNI, LSBU will feature prominently in an established programme of global urban lectures on the theme of the UN Habitat, or sustainable urban development.
Obas John Ebohon, Professor of Sustainability and Environmental Law, at LSBU said: “Signing up to the United Nations Habitat UNI partnership with over 100 universities gives LSBU the chance to tackle the biggest global issues including climate change, urban development, safety in cities and gender inequality.
"LSBU staff will gain from access to a wealth of global expertise and research. They will be able to access UN research networks such as the Global Urban Observatory, scientific data and a range of internship and training opportunities."
