The Human Rights Careers website has details of [massive on-line, open] courses in relation to each of the 17 sustainable development goals.  It says:

The SDGs are 17 goals with a total of 169 targets among them, most of which are meant to be achieved by 2030.  These goals strive to work towards sustainable economic, social, and environmental development on a global scale.  You can read in-depth reports about these goals and the progress being made towards achieving them.  Courses offered through the SDG initiative cover one or more of the goals through Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).

Unsurprisingly, perhaps, the nature and range of courses on offer vary considerable across the 17 goals.  There are, for example, 6 courses cited for Goal 3, but only 1 for Goal 2.  5 for Goal 13; 1 for Goal 15.  This recognises that some goals are more clearly stated than others, with some being more mainstream than others.

These are only the beginnings of attempts to address the issues underpinning the goals, and they should be welcomed as a start to a long-term initiative.
