Future Learn is seeking applicants for its free online course entitled “Africa: Sustainable Development for All?
The course will explore why there continues to be many sub-Saharan African countries which perform poorly on development indicators for reducing poverty, hunger and unemployment and improving maternal health and access to quality reproductive health services.
This free online course will assess progress made to date in the achievement of the UN Millennium Development Goals and will provide information from key people in international development to discuss whether the proposed UN post-2015 sustainable development agenda can be achieved in sub-Saharan Africa.
The course is designed for anyone with a passion for humanity, human rights and sustainable development. You will learn to think critically and communicate effectively about development stories, past, present and future.
Applicants will get a chance to learn with experts from the University of Aberdeen Centre for Sustainable International Development (CSID) who will bring a multi-sectoral and interdisciplinary perspective to the course, recognising that a range of approaches is required, to tease out the complexity of sustainable development and help us understand why inclusive development has not yet been realised.
The course is designed for anyone with a passion for humanity and sustainable development. You could be a current undergraduate; a gap year student interested in volunteering or interning in international development; or someone working in development (or interested in doing so) in the public, private or third sectors.
