SDG Action and Awareness Week

The University Global Coalition, in partnership with the State University of New York, is proud to declare March 1-5, 2021 UN Sustainable Development Goals Action and Awareness Week. The purpose of this week is to promote awareness of the SDGs among students in higher education and inspire them to take action in furtherance of the goals on their campuses and in their local community.

As one of the goals of SDG Action and Awareness Week, a steering committee is curating discussion guides for faculty to use in educating their students about the SDGs throughout the week. The guides will provide a broad overview of the SDGs and how to frame issues that we know students already care about and will be general enough in nature to be used across a wide range of disciplines. In addition to these guides, we’ll provide links to existing resources for learning about and acting on these resources, and a calendar of events taking place March 1-5.
