Social Responsibility and Sustainability

Support for your teaching

Your students want you to teach the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Join the community of practice to take your teaching of sustainability and climate to the next level, no matter what your discipline.

University of Edinburgh students Sofia Velazquez Pimentel and Hanqi Feng interview fellow students about how they are taught sustainability in their programmes and what they want to see. Catrin Pilkinton and  Yiling Ju helped create the video. Four minutes, 22 seconds. 

Join the community of practice

We want to ensure educators feel confident when making course design changes to embed the Sustainable Development Goals in their teaching.

  • Share examples of good practice and experiences
  • Access resources and training opportunities
  • Collaborate between academic and professional colleagues on living lab projects, including both student-led projects and those that link academic research and operational issues
  • Celebrate success and receive encouragement
  • Identify and revisit challenges using a critical friend approach.

The new 'Teaching: Climate and Sustainability Community of Practice' aligns with the Curriculum Transformation Project and the Climate and Sustainability Sub-group.

We invite you to join, whether you teach formally or informally, are new to teaching sustainability or have done so for many years.
