Every year there is an increase in the number of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) available on sustainability topics. These courses are available for free online and are open to anyone with an interest in the topic. Each term a list of currently available MOOCs focused on the SDGs and other sustainability topics is posted here. Up now are MOOCs for the Winter (or Summer depending on where you are reading this from). If a MOOC is too much of a commitment, take a look at gowi for short courses focused on sustainability and the SDGs delivered by email over 7 days.

Copenhagen Business School developed a MOOC on Becoming a Social Entrepreneur. During this three part online course, students form virtual teams with others from around the world to study a problematic issue to learn more about the source of the problem. Then, based on this, they develop an idea and a business model. Students have the opportunity to compete virtually in a business plan competition based on the ideas they develop. The final part of the course involves developing a method to evaluate the social mission that you achieve while implementing your business plan. Click here for more.
