Connect-Us Conference (CuC) is an international conference organised by the Swiss–ASEAN Learning and Teaching (SALT), a registered not-for-profit association, which aims to promote the sharing of diverse research works, teaching and learning practices among academics and practitioners worldwide, specifically in the field of sustainable development.
CuC aims to gather academics, researchers, scientists, community development practitioners, policymakers, youth groups, and all stakeholders to deliberate on issues and challenges affecting the sustainable development of society. Furthermore, it seeks to document approaches, practices, policies and strategies utilised in various levels and contexts to address and attain the development goals.
Organised once every two years starting in 2017, CuC pledges to highlight the chronic issues confronting everyone in the world today: ranging from globalisation, climate change, effects of urbanisation, poverty, access to education, health and malnutrition, pollution, environmental degradation, and many more, which threaten the well-being of society and our future generations. Notably, SALT recognises that societal problems which remain unchecked and unmanaged can weaken, threaten, or even destroy society. It is deemed timely to continuously raise the awareness and involvement of stakeholders, experts and strategists on the importance and urgency of sharing, contributing knowledge in sustaining inclusive development of society.
The second SALT CuC will take place on October 9 - 10, 2019 in Malaysia hosted by Universiti Teknologi Malaysia.
