Education

A global network of student hubs of hubs of learning and engagement for the SDGs, as well as drivers of new solutions to local problems.

SDG Students Program

Overview

  • Many students want to contribute to global issues such as climate warming and poverty - but do not know how. They do not know enough about the topics, how to engage or act on them. The SDG Students Program are semi-virtual, semi-physical community hubs of learning and local action. These hubs educate university students about the SDGs, and train them into a supporters who will carry the importance of sustainability into their future work upon graduation.
