Message from Dr. Jeffrey Sachs, of Columbia University and the Earth Institute


Dear friends and colleagues,

The Sustainable Development Solutions Network is proud to present its new education initiative, SDSN.edu, which brings together online courses on sustainable development created by experts from around the world!  We are rolling out several exciting courses throughout the Fall. Please join us in spreading the word!
We are kicking off SDSN.edu with three courses:

1.       I am offering my course The Age of Sustainable Development again, starting September 9, 2014. There will also be a special bonus this Fall: all students that complete the course will receive the free e-book version of my new book, titled The Age of Sustainable Development.

2.       The two-semester course Climate Change Science & Negotiationstaught by myself and Emmanuel Guerin, will introduce the science and policies of climate change. The course includes a simulated UNFCCC negotiation during the second semester, in which students take on the role of country delegates. This course coincides with the broader SDSN Climate Change Call to Action

3.       Planetary Boundaries and Human Opportunities, by Prof. Johan Rockstr√∂m and his colleagues at the Stockholm Resilience Center, offers an outstanding overview of sustainability science and potential pathways for human well-being. 

All three SDSN.edu courses are free of charge and are now open for enrollment. OtherSDSN.edu courses are currently in development and will be announced soon. 

The coming year and a half, till the end of 2015, will be a pivotal period in the history of sustainable development. Please join SDSN.edu in mobilizing education for sustainable development by spreading the word among your friends and colleagues. If you have questions please write to our Education Initiatives team at edu@unsdsn.org.


Kind regards,

Jeffrey D. Sachs
