The GSUA summit, awards and exhibition will witness the official inauguration of the Global South Universities Association (GSUA) and the launch of the Global South Centre for Research, Innovation, Peace and Technology for Sustainable Development (G-SCRIPTS-D) as well as provide a discussion platform on the world’s fragmented education and the pressing concern on the delivery of ethical, qualitative and skillful education.

With the share of good practices, the discussions will aim to take the dialogue from strategy towards implementation, and the possible models that can work best for in particular, the developing countries of the Global South as a means to narrowing the ever increasing Global – North South Divide and the rebuilding of the bricks of our fractured world as propagated in 2018 by the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland.
