Explore and contextualize specific challenges associated with UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through mentored research and virtual engagement with partners and leaders from featured sectors and global geographies.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by all United Nations Member States, are part of an interconnected strategy to build a better world for all people on our planet by 2030. Many challenges to achieving the sustainable development of our world are faced by people everywhere, regardless of political boundaries. And yet, the geopolitical and cultural contexts surrounding specific challenges for regions around the world play an important role in empowering communities and building capacity.
Through this exciting remote project, we invite students to explore specific challenges associated with the SDG's through a complement of independent research supported by the UB Libraries, and virtual engagement with leaders and partners from related sectors and geographies. Through contextualizing and localizing research findings through interviews and harvesting digital media, students will deepen understanding and identify areas for collaboration, innovation and support.
Students will gain the following:
|Length of commitment||Less than a semester (0-2 motnhs)|
