    In June, Magna Charta Observatory officially launched the Magna Charta 2020 (MCU 2020) in a global virtual celebration of the principles, values and responsibilities universities espouse.

    Date and time: September 29, 2021. 1500 – 1630 CEST
    Registration is free and open now to all university leaders, staff and students.
    Societal responsibility is one of the first principles set out in the new MCU 2020 in that universities acknowledge their 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.” But what does that look like in practice around the globe?
    The purpose of this webinar is to start answering this question in a way that will give insight and inspire universities to consider further their social contract with civil society.
