SCC’s current Online Dialogue* focuses on the key components of the 2030 Development Agenda: the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Paris Climate Agreement, and Sendai Framework on disaster risk. SCC Director Ira Feldman has organized and will moderate this dialogue to engage leading experts and stakeholders. This professional development offering is based on the premise that teaching faculty in ESD need to understand the fundamentals of these frameworks that will guide sustainable development for the next 15 years.
