Udemy Online course : SDG 4.7 Across Curriculum & Education Spaces
Udemy offers an online course on how to integrate Education for Sustainable Development that spans subjects, connects to communities, and empowers learners. This course aims to provide a framework and roadmap for how education can help drive achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, a sweeping set of global goals agreed to by all United Nations member countries in 2015, with a deadline of being achieved by 2030. Sustainable Development Goal 4 focuses on education, and challenges us to “Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all”.
Within this broad goal, target 4.7 calls on us to “ensure all learners acquire knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship, and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development”.
This course is focused specifically on helping education stakeholders, and especially teachers, better understand how you can help achieve target 4.7 for a sustainable future. We take the SDG 4.7 framework and its vision to see how educators from K-12 and beyond can operationalize it through curriculum design, lesson planning, community connection, and monitoring to incorporate the essence of SDG4.7 and ESD.
