Readers interested in learning about sustainable development may want to check out these free graduate-level MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courses) offered by SDG Academy, a program from the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Solutions Network. These interactive online courses are designed to “cover the headline issues and a multitude of interdisciplinary topics related to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, a set of aims and targets adopted by member states of the United Nations in 2015,” with each course aligning with one or more of these goals. For example, the course entitled “Macroeconomics for a Sustainable Planet” adheres to Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth, while the introductory course “The Age of Sustainable Development” is relevant to all 17 goals. The instructors for SDG Academy’s courses are experts drawn from universities, institutes, and organizations around the world, such as New York University, the University of Oxford, and the Stockholm Resilience Centre. Most of the courses are self-paced and can be completed anytime, while some are instructor-paced and have specific start and end dates. All of SDG Academy’s courses can be accessed and completed for free via the edX platform, and learners also have the option to purchase certificates verifying course completion.
