At TU Dublin, 80+ students and 20+ staff took a deep dive into the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as part of our Education for Sustainable Development initiative, funded by the National Forum. The workshop was initially piloted by Andy Maguire, Lucia Walsh and Olivia Freemen with students on the PG Cert in Sustainability Leadership.
This workshop wasdesigned to promote engagement and increase understanding around the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by the UN General Assembly in 2015. Many of the Targets, Indicators and Associated meta-data are highly relevant for a variet of business contexts. By the end of this workshop (including the preparatory activities) students had navigated Goals, Targets, Indicators and Meta-data online, considering the significance of specific indicators and associated metadata for a context of their choosing. Students engaged in discussion in small groups and the class to further consolidate learning.
Ecah group were allocated one of the goals from the SDG framework. See https://sdgs.un.org/goals for an overview of all 17 SDG and explored the relevant metadata at https://unstats.un.org/sdgs/metadata/
