Integrating the Sustainable Development Goals in Language Education:

A Critical Inquiry-Based Curricular Project

Background of the project

Sustainability is at the center of many ongoing conversations, and the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (SD) and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is one of the most significant documents that attempts to address this 21st-century global challenge. Given its multidisciplinary and multidimensional nature, education for sustainability must permeate all disciplinary curricula, including that of language and culture programs at all educational levels. By becoming sustainability literate multicompetent multilingual and intercultural actors, students can address complex issues and positively contribute to a sustainable future.
