鉴于第一次实质性会议, GUAF released its first press statement affirming the meeting’s focus in enabling international exchange and collaboration in higher education. 其内容如下:

"On 17 May in Barcelona, the Global 大学 Associations Forum (GUAF) was formally constituted. 论坛汇集了非洲大学协会的代表, 美洲, 阿拉伯地区, 亚洲和欧洲. 论坛成员首次实体会议的重点, 由EUA主持,Ramon Llull大学主持, 是为了促进高等教育的国际合作与交流.

在这次成立大会上, Forum members shared their experiences of and visions for enabling international collaboration and exchange. Pathways and mechanisms for fostering collaborative practices were considered in the context of student and researcher mobility, universities’ contribution to achieving goals set out in the UNESCO Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), associations’ respective continental and regional development aspirations as well as the influence of geopolitical factors.

Creating and sustaining frameworks that promote exchange across higher education and research systems is a pivotal step towards safeguarding the future of our communities and our planet. 在全球范围内,没有强有力的研究和教育合作结构, 社会将无力应对气候变化, 保护环境, pursue the global health of its citizens and move collectively towards building sustainable societies and circular economies.

论坛商定了若干后续行动:它将采取行动

  • 促进高等教育部门的作用,更具体地说, its capacity to facilitate international exchange and collaboration – in working towards the SDGs and other continental and regional development regimes; to date, the sector’s role in achieving SDG goals has not been widely acknowledged and does not feature sufficiently in government strategies;
  • 强调尊重基本价值观, 比如机构自治和学术自由, as critical in building sufficient scope and decision-making power to engage in international collaboration;
  • 承诺共享资源——包括策略, guidelines and data – on topics of mutual interest among Forum members to facilitate coherent collective action on key matters at a global level;
  • 在体制和国家一级解决阻碍流动的障碍;
  • explore how Forum member associations can contribute to the establishment of collaborative (virtual) learning approaches.
