Integrating UN Sustainable Development Goals in Human and Physical Geography Courses

Much potential exists to incorporate the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into Human and Physical Geography courses by adopting a pedagogy which includes campus / community action. Including such outreach efforts in course design, and aligning these efforts to the SDGs, allow students to develop an appreciation for their own potential and power while expanding their worldview, geographic knowledge base, AND challenging global stereotypes of development and progress. This Engage & Connect presentation includes review of an instructional design template together with three lesson plans focusing on Plastics, Trees, and Food, Though developed for higher education, there is great potential to apply in all education levels.- Tracy L.
