This project is funded by Erasmus+.  We are looking for students studying any subject at any UK University to help us develop, co-create and test existing sustainable development learning content before, during and after a visit to Budapest, Hungary from 6 to 10 July inclusive.  You’ll join a vibrant and dynamic team from UK, Hungary, Italy and Portugal.  We will also be exploring how we can explicitly link the UN SDGs to University learning modules.

Participation in these mobilities is free.  The costs of travel, accommodation and food are all covered by Erasmus+.  All you have to do is make your own way to the UK point of departure.  You’ll need to complete a short application form which can be accessed by leaving your email address below.

To join the project you must be an undergraduate, postgraduate or 2019 graduate.  All skills and backgrounds are welcome – you might be an English student, a geographer, a physicist of a biologist – a historian or a sociology student (this list could go on…) – everyone has something to contribute and we’d welcome your views and input!

THE PROJECT

We’re asking students studying in the UK to help us develop some on-line learning materials and social media content that tell real stories around making links between University learning modules/or learning activities /or projects and the UN SDGs.

This Erasmus+ SHOUTOUT4SDGs project aims to make the UN Sustainable Development Goals explicit within Higher Education and the world of work. The main project website is here and we’ll be adding new learning material to this we go through 2020.

The project is a partnership between Ambios Ltd (UK) the Barn Owl Foundation (Hungary) and AmbiosPT (Portugal), as well as the University of Padova (Italy) and the University of Evora (Portugal).  The Universities of Southampton (UK) and ELTE (Budapest, Hungary) are also associated with the project.  Through students we now have links with Universities of Exeter and Strathclyde.

Some feedback:

“I wanted to thank you once again for facilitating such a wonderful week in Coruche, Portugal where I got the opportunity to learn many new things and network with interesting people throughout. This experience has been invaluable to me and my career aspirations, and for that I am thankful. The project was very well put together and encouraged lots of critical thinking about sustainability, combined with the story of cork oak montado ecosystems, and the practical solutions session inspired me to take action.”
