The Sustainability and Development Initiative is developing an online curriculum which will equip learners with the actionable knowledge, methods, and skills necessary to critique, assess, and achieve the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The online program will be distinguished from other online offerings through its reliance on a modular approach: the curriculum will be structured around 100+ topic-based video modules, each with evaluation components. The modules will be able to be mixed and matched into customized sets, according to the needs of learners and their educational goals.

The proposed program of instruction aims to address development and sustainability challenges by training new generations of learners in the theory, practice, and methods relevant to achieving sustainability and development, as represented by the 17 SDGs.
