The Sustainable Development Solutions Network is proud to present its new education initiative, SDSN.edu, which brings together online courses on sustainable development created by experts from around the world! SDSN is starting on the launches of several exciting courses through the Fall, and many of them are free!
Professor Jeffrey Sachs’ course, The Age of Sustainable Development, starts on September 9th. The course provides a comprehensive introduction to the various dimensions of sustainable development and serves as the foundational course for the broader compendium of courses offered through SDSN.edu. There will also be a special bonus this Fall: all students that complete the course will receive the free e-book version of Professor Sachs’ new book, titled The Age of Sustainable Development.
Climate Change Science & Negotiations is up next, a two-semester course introducing students to the science and policy environment surrounding climate change with a simulated negotiation in the second semester, in which students take on the role of country delegates. This course coincides with the broader SDSN Climate Change Call to Action in advance of the COP 21 negotiations in Paris in December 2015. Both courses are currently open for enrollment.
