Partnerships For The Goals

Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.

Mahidol University promotes the establishment of international collaborative networks for sustainable development. Primarily, courses on sustainable development have been introduced for students at all levels of study, and for academic and support staff, on the importance of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Short-term courses are also offered, such as “Sustainable Transportation” from the Faculty of Engineering, which can be studied free of charge through Mahidol University Extension (MUx) online course management system. The provision of these courses at university level enables students and staff to apply their knowledge to the real world and understand the importance of sustainable development at local, national, regional and international levels. For example, Mahidol University International College''''s faculty and students participated in Asia Pacific Day for the Ocean, which was organized by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP). This program facilitates the exchange of ideas in marine conservation through sustainable fisheries and transport, marine pollution management, and increased regional cooperation. The University also attended the United Nations High-Level Forum on the Green Economy, which focused on key principles and trends in the process of transition to a green economy, as well as tools and methods for proactively implementing a green business economy. Mahidol University aims to build educational cooperation with many countries; for example, it has offered scholarships in conjunction with the Embassy of Norway in Thailand (Mahidol – Norway Scholarships) to provide opportunities for medical personnel from Myanmar to study Master and Doctoral degrees at Mahidol University. The University offers a training program for medical personnel from the Lao People''''s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) under the initiative of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, to help improve knowledge and skills in health promotion, disease treatment, patient care, and drug use. The program has been conducted every year since 2000, with a total of 1,144 participants to date. Mahidol University commits to ongoing international collaborative agreements with educational institutions worldwide - especially with strategic partnerships - for academic activities and research, the creation of joint- and double-degree programs, and the global exchange of students and staff (Inbound and Outbound) (Internationalization). The College of Management Mahidol University (CMMU), together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Thailand, have established the ASEAN Center for Sustainable Development Studies and Dialogue (ACSDSD). This collaboration will support coordination with various regional and global organizations to drive sustainable development in the ASEAN Community. The sustainable development projects include implementation of data technology to protect the sea, gender equality and women’s potential in the workplace, and waste classification in schools.
