Global Citizenship



*This credential is only available to current RMIT students

Join this free online module to investigate pressing issues our world is facing and work with your RMIT peers across the globe to implement positive change. 

Through this self-paced module, you will learn more about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), created in 2015 to end poverty, reduce inequalities and tackle climate change.  

You will then select one goal to focus on and will interact with peers across the world to exchange different perspectives and ideas, before planning how you will step up as active global citizens and commit to action in the workplace, your personal life, and in the community. 

In learning these skills, you will be able to help future employers be more ethical and sustainable.  

You will become Global Citizens, individuals who see the world as one interconnected community, who embrace their social responsibility for the benefit of all societies across the globe, and actively work to make our planet more sustainable, socially fair, and peaceful.  

You can start this micro-credential at any time of the year and complete it at your own pace. 

Upon completion, you will earn a verified RMIT Cred badge which you can add on your CV, embed in your LinkedIn profile, and add to your career portfolio.
