Table 06: Sustainability in the Curriculum: Creating Opportunities for Students to Engage with UN Sustainable Development Goals

Introduced in 2018, ‘Sustainability in the Curriculum’ is a faculty-led institutional initiative and community that provides guidance to develop a new course or a course module that incorporates sustainability or environmental issues appropriate to your field. This initiative is guided by a collection of UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including issues around poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice.  By addressing SDGs and targeting specific learning outcome(s) within your courses, students will have the opportunity to search for, apply and achieve a Sustainability Certificate administered by the Ecosystem Science and Policy (ECS) program. During this session, we will 1) discuss with faculty ways they can explore and address a collection of global goals within their courses, 2) share curriculum resources from organizations and academic institutions, 3) identify university resources and student organizations that engage students in sustainable development opportunities.
