This website presents companion case studies to the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) guide, Accelerating education for the SDGs in universities, which was launched in September 2020.
As part of the development of the guide, SDSN invited universities around the world to submit case studies of how they are already implementing and supporting education for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
A selection of the many innovative and inspiring case studies that were received is referenced in the guide and presented in full in this website.
Education for the SDGs (ESDGs) refers to helping learners develop the necessary knowledge, skills and mindsets to contribute to solving complex societal challenges. It is one of the most important ways universities (and other types of tertiary and higher education institutions) can help achieve the SDGs – and this guide aims to show universities what they can do to expand and accelerate its implementation to all learners within their sphere.
To facilitate browsing, these cases are organized according to the “learners” the initiatives intend to reach: traditional students (by either curricular or co-curricular actions), university staff, and the community at large.
