In this course, learn all about the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
In September 2015, the world’s leaders signed on to this new agenda, answering the call for a global vision of important social, economic and environmental needs to support the planet and its people in long-term prosperity and survival. The goals include a set of key areas of focus, as well as detailed targets to put our planet on track for this continuing sustainability through 2030 and beyond.
Sustainable development is not just a problem for future generations. It is a shared global responsibility now and forevermore to be thoughtful stewards of our entire world – from developed countries to developing countries, from high-level policymakers to individuals.
This course is for:
- Anyone new to the concept of the Sustainable Development Goals who wants to understand what they are, why they’re important and how to achieve them
- Graduate students and advanced undergraduate students interested in the key concepts and practices of sustainability
- Policymakers and sustainable development practitioners looking for a concise overview of the goals and their targets
- Private-sector actors, such as those who work in corporate sustainability and responsibility or at universities – who want their work to be more sustainable and align with global progress
