APRU Undergraduate Leaders’ Program 2024


About the program

Shanghai Jiao Tong University is proud to host the Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU) Undergraduate Leaders’ Program (ULP) in July 2024. Themed “Sustainable Development in a Fast-Changing Metropolis,” this program is a beacon of inspiration and learning for the leaders of tomorrow.

Set against the dynamic and evolving backdrop of Shanghai, a city that epitomizes the blend of tradition with cutting-edge modernity, the program offers a unique window into the challenges and opportunities of urban sustainability.

The focus of the program is on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 11): Sustainable Cities and Communities, as well as cross-cutting goals on food security (SDG 2), green mobility (SDG 7), and sustainable ecosystems (SDGs 14, 15).

As the world grapples with the complexities of urban development that is inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable, this program stands as a pivotal platform for fostering a deep and nuanced understanding of these critical issues.
