Towards SDGs fulfilment: From local action to global reach

Course Overview

Welcome to the Towards SDGs fulfilment: From local action to global reach Course

Being able to organize particular community towards positive social change on local level and also communicate this activity as a powerful story is an important skill for leaders. The idea of this project is to create an eLearning course on the UN Agenda 2030 for (18+ years old) young activists, youth workers and nonprofit volunteers or charity workers willing to take an action towards an achievement of SDGs as individuals, bring and promote positive social change to their communities on local levels.

In this subject, you will learn about an importance of the UN Agenda 2030 together with its 17 SDGs and how to take an action and organize an event, as well as how to use storytelling to communicate your local action to different audiences on national or even global level. You will also learn how to use media and social networks towards their SDGs-related community activities promotion. This course also serves as an opportunity to practice creating and sharing stories from your local community work with global nonprofit community.
