SDG Academy: Course on “Sustainable Cities”
What will the impact be on the current world population – half of which currently lives in cities and contributes to about three-fourths of global economic output as urbanization continues? The opportunities are vast – but so are the potential issues. In the massive open online course Sustainable Cities, you will learn about the major challenges currently faced by urban areas around the world – including poverty, unemployment, poor housing infrastructure, and constraints on productivity – and the extraordinary potential of these areas to enable change in the future. From infrastructure to culture to economic opportunity, learn how harnessing the power of urban development for global progress is imperative.
The course content will be released starting 2 April 2018.
