South Asia’s economic dynamism has triggered fast and deep social and ecological transformations alongside uneven development across the region. This has often occurred at the cost of environmental degradation, significantly affecting those at the margins of society. The UN Agenda 2030 – SDGs represent a globally negotiated agenda to address these (global) challenges including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The Knowledge 2Action Online Academy aims to understand what sustainable development means and how to contribute to its advancement in the landscape across South Asia, especially in the post pandemic context.

Join us for a three-week online academy aiming to contribute to a better understanding of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and for the better translation of this knowledge into action. Using key concepts from design thinking in combination with peer to peer learning (across contexts and disciplines) we will enable converting cutting edge-knowledge pertaining to SDGs into action. The program will involve essential voices from South Asia, of academicians, decision makers, civil society, and importantly, from the grassroot level as well as excellent communicators coming in as skill trainers.

The program is offered by the Clusters of Cooperation in the Global South (CLOC) and is sponsored by Swiss Universities Development and Cooperation Network (SUDAC).
