Sign up for 2023/24Pledge now!Check it out


The SDG Teach In is a campaign to put the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and therefore sustainability, at the heart of all stages of education, and across all disciplines. This annual campaign calls upon educators to include the SDGs within their teaching, learning and assessment during the campaign (and beyond!).

The 2023 campaign ran from March 1st - March 31st 2023 and was our most successful Teach In yet! Check out our achievements section for more information, or watch our reflective webinar.

The 2024 SDG TeachIn will take place throughout March. In our seventh year, we're hoping to not only reach more students and educators than ever and help them #getstarted on sustainability, but to help them #gofurther with embedding the SDGs into training, teaching, and learning. Pledge now and begin preparing for the 2024 SDG Teach In!

Remember the Teach In is open to all types of formal and informal training providers, educators and workplace learning providers. Join our Introduction to the 2024 SDG Teach In - Get Started, Go Further Webinar taking place on the 17th January from 2:30pm-4:00pm to learn more!

If you are working on sustainability education at an institution and would like more information about pledgers at your institution, then get in touch!
