Mapping formal curricula against the UN Sustainable Development Goals

A support package for mapping the UN Sustainable Development Goals across the formal curriculum through a student-led audit.

The Sustainable Development Goals set out a framework for eliminating poverty, taking action on climate change, and creating a more just and sustainable future for all. They are a universal set of goals, targets, and indicators that UN member states are expected to use to frame their agendas and political policies from 2015-2030.

Universities, colleges, and students’ unions across the UK are increasingly examining how they might map their teaching and learning onto the SDGs. We know there is significant demand from students for greater inclusion of sustainability, in its broadest sense, in the formal curriculum.

In response to this institutional and student demand, the University of Winchester and NUS developed a training and support package for mapping the curriculum to the SDGs through a student-led audit.

The package also includes mapping against Education for Sustainable Development teaching and learning approaches, to ensure students are not just acquiring knowledge but also the skills and competencies to deliver on sustainability.
