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 2024 SDG Teach In - Get started, Go Further campaign ran from March 1st - March 31st 2024 and was an incredibly successful Teach In! In its seventh year, we worked on reaching more students and educators to help them #getstarted on sustainability, or #gofurther with embedding the SDGs into training, teaching, learning and daily practice.

The Teach In is open to all types of formal and informal training providers, educators and workplace learning providers.
