The University Global Coalition, in partnership with the State University of New York, is proud to declare March 1-5, 2021 the first annual UN Sustainable Development Goals Action and Awareness Week. The purpose of this week is to promote awareness of the SDGs among students in higher education and inspire them to take action in furtherance of the goals on their campuses and in their local community.

To deliver on the goals of SDG Action and Awareness Week, a steering committee is curating discussion guides for faculty to use in educating their students about the SDGs throughout the week. The idea for the guides is to provide a broad overview of the SDGs and how they frame issues that we know students already care about. The guides will be general enough in nature to be used across a wide range of disciplines. These discussion guides are meant to serve as aides for faculty to deliver on the “Awareness” portion of the week. The students themselves will provide the “Action”.
