The SDGs and Courses Offered

The SDGs are 17 goals with a total of 169 targets among them, most of which are meant to be achieved by 2030. These goals strive to work towards sustainable economic, social, and environmental development on a global scale. You can read in-depth reports about these goals and the progress being made towards achieving them at https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org. Courses offered through the SDG initiative cover one or more of the goals through Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).

Coursera is the primary platform where these courses are offered for the general public in the form of online classes with the hope of increasing participation in the work being done towards these goals. The courses often provide a hands-on experience with an NGO or international organization who is working to achieve the SDGs through their work. The participating universities hope to offer a global education on these goals and ways to get involved.

In 2018, the world saw wars on children — and they listened | TheHill | #GLOBE4SDGSs

We’ve seen corporations reflect on their global impact, as they increased their investments in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Through innovative public-private partnerships, companies have committed to solving the world’s most complex challenges in global development, from tackling climate change to saving children’s lives — and in turn, they’ve cultivated creative and impactful solutions. Microsoft’s partnership with UNICEF is just one example of this: they recently committed to protect and help children affected by conflict and natural disasters by increasing access to education through digital technology and scaling up UNICEF’s digital child protection case management system.
