Call for applications: The Age of Sustainable Development Online Course II

sdsn_logo_fcWe are pleased to announce the launch of SDSN.edu, the online education initiative of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network. To kick off this initiative, we will be offering the second instance of Jeffrey Sachs’ course, The Age of Sustainable Development, free of charge in September 2014 through our new SDSN.edu platform. The course is currently open for pre-registration on our website. All participants that complete the course will also get the free e-book version of Professor Sachs’ new book, titled The Age of Sustainable Development.

The course provides a comprehensive introduction to the various dimensions of sustainable development and will serve as the foundational course for the broader compendium of courses that will be offered through SDSN.edu over the next few years. Additional information about the course is provided in the attached informational document, and all SDSN member institutions will have access to course materials to use in their existing programs. Please pre-register as soon as possible for the course to ensure that you receive upcoming correspondence and to learn more about the additional courses offered by SDSN.edu.

SDSN is excited to launch this initiative and look forward to building an cadre of engaged and informed development practitioners in the lead up to 2015. Please email Megan Cassidy, SDSN Education Manager, at megan.cassidy@unsdsn.org for more information on the course, notifications about the additional offerings of the SDSN.edu, and/or to discuss how best to use the course materials in your own programs.
