World Sustainable Development Teach-In Day 2021

A Global Movement to enhance SDGs – Date: 2 December 2021 / Venue: Online

The World Sustainable Development Teach-In Day (WSDTID) is a decade-long global movement that aims to spread awareness of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) – the universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. We hold this major online event on the first Friday of December every year. This year, we aim to accelerate progress towards achieving the UN SDGs at the grassroots level by focusing on the 3 “P”s – People, Planet and Prosperity.

We invite applications from individuals who are making meaningful contributions to advance the SDGs in their local or regional communities or even at a national and global level. There are two modes of participation:

– Lecture Marathon (Track A): This is an entry point for our ‘Sustainability Live Lecture Marathon’, where we will feature eminent SDG Heroes holding their lectures on 2 December 2021. To apply, send us a video pitch highlighting your SDG Action, as well as an outline of your presentation.

– Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Lecture (Track B): This is an independently organized and managed live lecture which you will hold as part of the WSD-TID 2021. Here, you will set up your own lecture on 2 Dec 2021 in either online or offline mode using tools such as Zoom, Skype, Google Meet etc. Your contribution to the WSD-TID 2021 will be featured in the central platform.

Regardless of your choice, there are some guidelines you will need to adhere to, in order for your presentation to be considered as part of the WSD-TID 2021: The presentations are related to the three key themes.
