RMIT hosted two panel discussions at the DisruptED 2019 Learning & Teaching Conference that further explored employability skills and the future of learning and teaching in the context of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Panel discussions topics are outlined below.
“Developing Employability Skills for Sustainable Development Goals”
This panel demonstrated the connections between employability skills and the SDGs, including the RMIT SDGs Placement in partnership with the Australian Association of Social Workers and RMIT’s Greenhouse and Sustainability Program (GSP).
“Ready for life and work? Using the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to disrupt teaching and learning at RMIT”
This panel generated discussion about how RMIT’s commitment to the SDGs impacts on teaching, learning and graduate outcomes. Case studies of RMIT courses embedding SDGs were presented to share “on the ground” experience.
The European Union Centre at RMIT continues its 2020 program with an exploration of Sustainable Development Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production.
RMIT is a partner of the 2020 UN & Australia Sustainable Partnerships Forum. The forum will bring together organisations and individuals across business, civil society, academia and government who are leading in building and supporting sustainable partnerships to progress the achievement of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
You are invited to join partners from Australia (EU Centre at RMIT and Australian National University), Scotland (University of Glasgow) and New Zealand (NCRE University of Canterbury) in a Policy Dialogue to explore ways of supporting collaboration and cohesive approaches to the implementation of the UN’s 2030 Agenda, as articulated in the 17 SDGs.
A new article published in the Cities and Health Journal explores the question, “How and in what way can the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the New Urban Agenda be invoked in urban projects in order to deliver liveability and sustainability beyond ‘business-as-usual?”
