Call for case studies: SDG learning and teaching in universities
Universities have always had a critical role in addressing the challenges of sustainable development through their research, innovation, education and leadership. The new global focus on the achievement of the SDGs provides all universities with an opportunity to deepen and accelerate these contributions.
The Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) is working to help universities mobilize greater focus and action on the SDGs. The SDSN guide, “”, provides an overview of how all universities can contribute to the SDGs and some practical suggestions.
Building on this guide, SDSN is developing a more in-depth guide on how universities and higher education institutions can support the uptake and implementation of the SDGs through their learning and teaching activities.
To support the new learning and teaching guide, SDSN invites universities and higher education institutions from all parts of the world to submit case studies on SDG-related activities they are undertaking. The aim is to capture and showcase a diverse range of innovative, impactful, and replicable university SDG implementation practices that can inspire and assist other universities to take action.
