The SDG Teach In is a campaign to put the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and therefore sustainability, at the heart of all stages of education, and across all disciplines. This annual campaign calls upon educators to include the SDGS within their teaching, learning and assessment during the campaign (and beyond!).
The 2023 campaign will run from March 1st - March 31st 2023, and educators can pledge to take part now via the SDG Teach In Pledge Form. This year, our aim is to get to 800 pledges!
The Teach In spans the formal, informal, and subliminal curriculum at all stages of education and through all disciplines, so educators of all kinds can take part! You can incorporate the SDGs in any way you like, but we encourage solutions-focused and participatory learning that is relevant to your discipline.

Their collective teaching and learning reached more than 140,000 students on courses from fashion buying to anatomy to photography to nutrition!

Since it's inception in 2018, the campaign has reached nearly 250,000 students across a broad range of disciplines. These students have been able to experience learning for sustainability in a way that's applied to their subject area. Take part in the 2023 campaign by pledging to include the SDGs in your teaching, learning and/or assessment.
