The SDG Primer

The SDGs Primer

Since we have developed the UN-TU joint teaching program*, we would like to introduce the SDG Primer.

This "SDG Primer' explores the transformative shift in the development paradigm embodied in the 2030 Agenda. It supports common understanding of the Agenda's complexity and breadth, and the requirements to deliver on its 17 SDGS and 169 targets.


The SDG Primer lays out the:

  • Urgency of action required by all actors in all countries
  • Foundational characteristics of this universal and integrated framework
  • Specific actions we can all take to better support countries and governments



It should take approximately 3 hours to complete this primer, We hope you find it thought-provoking, enjoyable and useful!

Let’s dive in …. https://sdgprimer.un.org/story_html5.html
