The current training efforts of UN Sustainability Development Goals focus on awareness building and rarely on the business opportunity recognition and economic development. Thus, an innovative and scalable curriculum and training material is needed.

 

The SDG4BIZ project designs and pilots a multidisciplinary, cross-border curriculum and training material for business opportunity recognition in SDGs. It enhances the awareness of business growth potential in SDGs and serves the innovation capabilities of EU companies and competence needs of European HEIs. The SDG4BIZ will represent the newest pedagogical knowledge train the trainers and help reach especially the millennials and the business effectively through combining micro-learning and mobile learning as pedagogical methods.

The training addresses the most relevant business opportunities inherent in SDGs with 5 Modules: 

Shared values

Companies are not able to recognize and use the business growth potential in addressing SDG challenges. Shared value benefits remain untapped, as achieving the SDGs could create 380 million jobs and unlock €10 trillion in business opportunities. 

Health and Wellbeing

Over the last 15 years, the number of childhood deaths has been cut in half. This proves that it is possible to win the fight against almost every disease. Still, we are spending an astonishing amount of money and resources on treating illnesses that are surprisingly easy to prevent. The new goal for worldwide Good Health promotes healthy lifestyles, preventive measures and modern, efficient healthcare for everyone.

Food and agriculture

Hunger is the leading cause of death in the world. Our planet has provided us with tremendous resources, but unequal access and inefficient handling leaves millions of people malnourished.

Cities

The World’s population is constantly increasing.To accommodate everyone, we need to build modern, sustainable cities. For all of us to survive and prosper, we need new, intelligent urban planning that creates safe, affordable and resilient cities with green and culturally inspiring living conditions.

Energy and Materials

Renewable energy solutions are becoming cheaper, more reliable and more efficient every day.Our current reliance on fossil fuels is unsustainable and harmful to the planet, which is why we have to change the way we produce and consume energy. Implementing these new energy solutions as fast as possible is essential to counter climate change, one of the biggest threats to our own survival.
