The 2020 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Teach-in campaign took place from Monday 17th to Friday 21st February 2020 and engaged 25,026 students and 307 teaching staff.
Across the 24 institutions that participated, DMU placed first for student engagement (~30%) and second for the amount of teaching staff pledges (41). DMU’s report can be viewed on our sustainability team’s blog.
“We are thrilled to be able to share that the brilliant work done by the team and by every lecturer who committed to this project has paid off. Our students have certainly gained a lot from the sessions and we hope that they will put into place the skills and knowledge earned during the week.” – Sustainable DMU Blog
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Teach-in is a week-long annual event where universities across the UK aim to make links to one or more of the SDGs within their taught courses. The event is co-ordinated by the SOS-UK (Students Organising for Sustainability), which grew out of the sustainability work of the National Union of Students (NUS). All of DMU’s taught courses and any other student or staff-led activities are invited to join in the teach-in. Click here for more information on how to get involved.
