IASAS and KOSAF-Korea Student Aid Foundation are pleased to invite you to the 7th biennal IASAS Global Summit that will take place in Daegu, Republic of Korea on 21-25 May 2024. 


A key outcome of our Global Summit discussions and deliberations focuses on our efforts to educate and support students in creating sustainable change while also considering how our institutions, associations, and organizations are responding. 

Together, we will explore innovative strategies, practices, contexts and cultures, and collaborative efforts that can lead to sustainable change in education and student affairs. We delve into the challenges, opportunities, and transformative actions necessary to positively influence students, institutions, and society at large.





Inspire Collaboration: Foster an environment that encourages collaboration and the exchange of ideas among educators, administrators, policymakers, and student affairs professionals to drive sustainable change in educational institutions.

Explore Sustainable Practices: Explore sustainable practices and initiatives that can be implemented within educational institutions to promote environmental, social, and economic responsibility. We focus on universities and organizations as laboratories for sustainable change like NetZero, climate action, sustainable cities, and micro-mobility. The ESG ranking system can be considered as higher education institutions, government agencies, and organizations promoting environmental, social, and economic responsibility. 

Enhance Student Engagement: Identify strategies to enhance student engagement, involvement, and leadership within educational institutions, enabling them to become active participants in driving sustainable change.

Empower Students: to become leaders and change agents through involvement in clubs, organizations, community service, leadership, and sustainability initiatives. We teach students the values, competencies, skills, and knowledge necessary to contribute to building a more sustainable society.
