This award-winning MOOC, from RSM and Coursera, offers inspiring insights and real business cases to learn how the private sector, public sector, and academia can work together towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals 2030 (SDGs).

Last year saw climate change move to the top of the political agenda. For over a decade the scientific evidence has been indisputable, but a year of extreme weather around the world, culminating in typhoons disrupting the Rugby World Cup in Japan and unprecedented wildfires in Australia, has brought a new sense of crisis.

With greenhouse gas emissions continuing to rise, nations need to significantly step-up the actions they are taking to fulfil the SDG pledges made at the 2015 Paris Agreement. Central to this will be the actions taken by the business community. Contrary to calls from Extinction Rebellion and other green lobbyists to reject the capitalist system, it is free market business albeit aligned with government that is best placed to offer the solutions the world urgently needs to meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
