Global Challenges I: The SDGs Relevance for the Social Sciences
We live in a new era when ideas, technologies, people, and diseases cross borders at a speed that was unseen before. It creates new opportunities as well as new risks. That is why leaders and experts work on a new development agenda to guide humanity to safety and prosperity. The new agenda is based on a set of certain development goals which all together can be called sustainable development goals (SDGs). The course, “Global Challenges I: The SDGs relevance for the Social Sciences I”, discusses with the students the academic and policy-related approaches to deal with SDGs. An understanding of SDGs is important to the future social scientist, as well as to an ordinary member of a social community. This course allows students to embrace the complexity of sustainable development from economic, legal, cultural, political, and historical perspectives. Understanding the complexity should show the ways how the humankind could answer the challenges of the time. To achieve the aim, we apply the seeking-for-a-solution- based teaching approach.
