HERDSA Webinar: Sustainability Development Goals and Higher Education
The United Nations has articulated 17 Sustainable Development Goals. My own pedagogical and research interest commenced some while ago where the UN previously declared the ‘Decade of Sustainability’. SDGs have now become a critical point of action for us all. But understanding what to do as educators is problematic. My own field of music can seem rather remote from the aim of zero poverty, but perhaps closer to the aim of good health and well-being or quality education.
In this webinar we will look at how we can embrace these goals as a focus for learning within our curriculum, look at some definitions and what that means for action, and hear some examples from the field of music.
