SDG Teach In

Putting the Sustainable Development Goals at the heart of education
Signup for 2021/2022

About

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.

The annual campaign runs in February/March of each year, and calls upon educators to include the SDGS within their teaching, learning and assessment during the campaign (and beyond!). Details on the 2022 campaign will be released soon.

Aims of the Teach In

The Teach In aims to:

  • Raise awareness of the importance of sustainable development.
  • Catalyse curriculum reform and test new ideas.
  • Embed sustainability and social responsibility across all learning.
  • Link teaching, learning, and assessment to local and global concerns.
  • Prepare students with the knowledge, skills, and attributes to tackle the world's greatest challenges.

Achievements

2021's campaign was our most successful to date, with more than 420 educators taking part at 48 institutions in 10 countries. Their collective teaching and learning reached more than 37,000 students on courses from fashion buying to anatomy to photography to nutrition!

Since it's inception in 2018, the campaign has reached nearly 100,000 students, who have been able to experience learning for sustainability in a way that's applied to their subject area.

Support the #SDGTeachIn

Every year, SOS-UK runs the Global Goals Teach In, where educators are encouraged to include the UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs) in their teaching and learning, across all stages of education and all disciplines. Students can support the campaign by sharing your experiences of sustainability education, letting us know why you want to see more sustainability included in your teaching and learning, or encourage teaching staff at your institution to take part. Details on the 2022 campaign will be released soon, but you can email Rachel.Soper@sos-uk.org if you'd like to discuss the campaign before then!
