All spheres of society are affected by the global pandemic. Higher education’s task is to consolidate the research required to solve post-pandemic issues. The project provides new methods and strategies to accelerate higher education engagement and achieve Sustainable Development Goals by following the six principles of PRME3 and the 17 SDGs of the United Nations, through initiatives applicable in the classroom. This aligns with the European strategy to provide resilient and forward-looking education and training systems that concretely favour sustainable development in a new post-covid space where the increase of digitalization has accelerated, and inequalities have increased. The new European strategy includes these objectives for the period 2021-2024.
Aim of the project
Our project aims to develop a new teaching methodology to help students achieve sustainable development goals related to social inclusion and inequality. This project aims to train students to lead responsibly in diverse situations, and apply their training in jobs by making business decisions that offer impactful alternatives. The program pays special attention to sustainable development goals 4 (quality education), 5 (gender equality) and 10 (reduction of inequalities).
Duration 24 months, 01/01/2023 to 31/12/2024

The teaching methodology is developed in the project and applied to higher education. It will contribute to sustainable development by providing students with the knowledge and skill required to have a favourable social impact on inclusion and respect diversity.
Moreover, the Erasmus+ Guide states that projects “must contribute to creating inclusive environments that foster equity and equality and respond to the needs of the community as a whole”.
To develop this innovative methodology and for it to be effective in provoking the desired social impact, it will be necessary to know and analyse how higher education is impacting the SDGs, as well as the main challenges to be faced from the perspective of inclusion, diversity, and employability.
- Innovative training methodology to contribute to sustainable development in higher education. A training course will be held for trainers teaching the method.
- A study on good practices based on training methodologies that contribute to sustainable development.
- A collaborative online platform for higher education teachers to share training methodologies related to sustainable development and examples of their application. The platform will discuss issues related to implementing these methodologies, including a measurement model for sustainable development.
