Introduction to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The SDGs offers a framework to better understand global issues, their impact on the local community, and how to activate as problem solvers. This webinar will offer community stakeholders the opportunity to better understand these issues and explore ways to address them at the local, national, and international level.
Through a partnership with Digital Promise, we offer Global Competence Microcredentials, which allow educators to demonstrate mastery of a range of skills to promote global competence within the K-12 learner experience. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are available through the University of North Carolina.

World Savvy offers a range of online coursework throughout the year for K-12 educators and practitioners. We also work through university partnerships to offer the Global Competence Certificate (GCC) — the premier Masters-level certificate program for in-service educators to build a globally competent teaching practice.
World Savvy is currently seeking higher education partners to deliver the GCC. Please contact Susan Costello Tennyson at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested.
