2021 Next Generation Learning and Skills - The Chinese University of Hong Kong - Hong Kong
Using the 17 SDGs as a framework, the Office of University General Education at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), launched a series of initiatives to help students develop a more comprehensive awareness of global challenges and to build a more purposeful pathway to work towards solutions.
The optional SDG Study Scheme lies at the heart of the project. The pilot Study Scheme was launched in the 2020–21 academic year. The aim of the Study Scheme is to enable students who aspire to be future leaders in sustainable development to integrate their academic learning with life experience and community engagement.
The three components of the Study Scheme are: (i) A short online course by the SDG Academy, named “How to achieve the SDGs”, which provides an overview of the SDGs and their significance; (ii) Three knowledge-based General Education courses; and (iii) One social-engagement course, or co-curricular volunteer activity of at least 80 hours.
