Global Goals Teach In


In February 2018 we held our first ever “SDG Teach In” to raise awareness of why the Global Goals for Sustainable Development should be at the heart of further and higher education and help catalyse the change needed to make this happen.

The 2019 SDG Teach In will take place from 18th - 22nd February 2019.

The Teach In calls upon educators across all stages of education to pledge to include the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) within their teaching, learning, and assessment on their course(s) / in their classrooms during the week of the 18-22 February 2019. 

The 2019 campaign will see NUS partner with organisations across education (primary, secondary, and tertiary education) as well as around the globe to call upon educators to ensure pupils and students learn about sustainability. 

"The SDG teach-in is a worthwhile initiative which will be an important step for institutions to take along the path of creating a culture of meaningful partnership, whilst also addressing global concerns"
