Design Thinking for Developing Global Competence and SDG Curricula

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and global competence together provide a powerful framework to help students take action locally for global impact. This interactive session builds on this idea and approaches curriculum creation through design thinking strategies that will illuminate the connections between global competence and the SDGs. Delegates become curators and creators as they collaborate using these strategies to develop meaningful learning experiences for their students.
