FREE Sustainability Training Courses from the United Nations...

Started by Martin White

Today’s complex interdependent planet requires a skilled workforce that can leverage cutting-edge knowledge to make the world a better place. The United Nations System Staff College delivers a robust mix of high-quality knowledge management, training and continuous learning for the staff of the United Nations system and partners.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted in 2015, is a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and set a deadline for achieving global peace and prosperity.

Through its Knowledge Centre for Sustainable Development, which was opened in 2016, the United Nations System Staff College (UNSSC) helps accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda through learning, training, and knowledge management. It does so in collaboration with and in support of the UN system, civil society, academia, the private sector and other partners. Another mandate of the Centre is to advance the Paris Agreement, under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

The Knowledge Centre for Sustainable Development supports the policy and operational work of the UN. It does this by advancing knowledge in sustainable development and by developing learning tools, platforms for interaction, and learning offerings for UN staff and counterparts. It also serves as a catalyst and convener, prompting dialogue and knowledge sharing on issues relevant to the vision and mission of the UN.
