World Sustainable Development Teach-In Day 2020


The 1st World Sustainable Development Teach-In Day, a concept pioneered by the Research and Transfer Centre „Sustainable Development and Climate Change Management” of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, was held on 3rd December 2010 and was attended by over 500 universities and nearly 20.000 students. 10 years later, the “World Sustainable Development Teach-In Day 2020” is being organised. It will be held on Friday, 4th December 2020, and will be regularly repeated over the period 2020-2030.

The World Sustainable Development Teach-In Day 2020 (WSD-TD 2020) is a major online event, which provides lecturers & learners with the latest information, the latest trends and insights on sustainable development and, in particular, the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and will showcase strategies and practical examples of projects from all over the world. It is organised by the European School of Sustainability Science and Research (ESSSR) and the Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme (IUSDRP) and led by the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany) and Manchester Metropolitan University (UK).

The open access action nature of the event aims to facilitate networking and knowledge transfer within a truly international, digital learning environment. Academic staff from universities all over the world, are encouraged to hold a Teach-In-Day lecture on 4th December 2020, becoming a part of a global sustainability movement. They will provide a vast amount of tailored presentations including helpful teaching notes, which can be used by lecturers worldwide. This will make the WSD-TD 2020 not only instructive, but also very interesting to learners.

Participation at the WSD-TD 2020 is made easy: Simply “adopt” a sustainable development presentation of your choice and include this in your teaching lessons on 4th December 2020! You can share your teaching experience with us on social media and via WSD-TD 2020 discussion boards, and network with fellow learners around the world on the platform.
