Teaching with the UN Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are 17 goals defined by the United Nations to tackle the world's biggest issues by 2030. The SDGs have direct applicability to many different disciplines and encompass a wide range of issues including social justice, gender equity, environmental sustainability, economic equality, and equal opportunity for quality education and healthcare. In this session, we will provide an overview of the SDGs and explore how these goals can be addressed in courses across disciplines.
