The SDG Challenge WA aimed to build knowledge around sustainability challenges, and mainstream Education for the SDGs (ESDGs).

Students from the four universities collaborated and worked in multidisciplinary teams to reflect upon SDGs 8,10,12 and 13 identifying problems and developing a solution through innovation and creative problem-solving.

National Indigenous Business Summer School (NIBSS) WA  

A joint initiative between Curtin University, Edith Cowan University, Murdoch University, and UWA under the auspices of the Australian Business Deans Council.

The Katitjiny Boya Birrit program was designed by a steering committee and academic leads from each institution, together with UWA’s School of Indigenous Studies and Centre for Social Impact. The program is designed to give students the opportunity to experience a week-long residential program and immersive experience into business and business studies at a university level, supported and inspired by university academics and Indigenous entrepreneurs.

This initiative is an exemplar of collaboration across educational institutions in WA seeing SBL advance in social and environmental responsibility.
