United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

This Summer School unfolds the United Nations’ sustainable development goals through student participation in a cross-cultural and cross-educational context. The goals derive from the United Nations’ international agreements on processing towards explicit sustainability in 2030. They are unique in that they call for action from all countries; poor, rich and middle-income alike to promote prosperity, all the while protecting the planet.

The course will focus on the following global topics, inspired by the United Nations’ sustainable development goals:
Health and well-being for people of all ages
Reduced inequality within health care, different ethnicities, social classes and gender
Sustainability through circularity in production, consumption, cities and communities
Strong, democratic and engaging institutions for all

The course aims to
facilitate student community involvement
develop students’ co-creational community skills, focusing on citizenship (and citizen involvement)
provide cross-cultural skills through differentiated themes, projects and ideas
build relationships between participants representing different cultures

Students will work with real life challenges within the four global topics developed by stakeholders and staff from VIA University College. The objective of the elective module is to provide students with the opportunity to develop innovative ideas for small improvements and solutions for the real life challenges.


Dates: July 30 - August 27 2018.
