Achieving Sustainable Development Online Course
Launching on 11 September 2017 and running for four weeks
New free online course Achieving Sustainable Development
What is the future of the world around us? What challenges do we face to address conflict, improve healthcare, build sustainable cities, and have access to clean water and sanitation? How will we know that we are having an impact in tackling these challenges?
The Trinity International Development Initiative, at Trinity College Dublin, presents a new free online course Achieving Sustainable Development. Launching on 11 September 2017, and running for four weeks, registration is open now.
Explore the challenges in achieving five of the global United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions; Good Health and Well-Being; Clean Water and Sanitation; Sustainable Cities and Communities; and Gender Equality. You will engage with case studies from Ireland, Colombia, India, Uganda and Korea. Find out how FARC rebels in Colombia are being reintegrated into society; why urban areas are changing how we think about sanitation; why the rapid growth of cities is changing how we think about urban mobility; and how tackling HIV is closely related to food security.
Critically examine the ways in which development impacts communities, and how it can make a difference to real lives locally and globally. This course is for anyone interested in the future of our world and how we can improve it. Register today on the Futurelearn platform
