The SDG Academy Knowledge Cloud
Welcome to the SDG Academy!

The SDG Academy creates and curates free, graduate-level courses on sustainable development for students around the world.

From sustainable cities to human rights to climate action, each of our courses addresses the fundamental challenge facing our world today: How do people, communities, governments and companies not only coexist, but also cooperate and collaborate, to save the one planet we have?

As a massive open online education platform, SDG Academy's courses are fully interactive, so you can meet, debate and learn from both our global faculty of sustainable development experts and your fellow students.

Learn more here about the SDG Academy – an initiative of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network – and the SDG Academy student experience.
