The 2022 Shanghai Jiao Tong University United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) July Camp(June 20-July 15) has a variety of 10 courses to choose from. Each course focuses on one or more SDG(s).

By participating in a course, you will learn more about pressing problems in the world and formulate possible solutions to them.

The courses are not only interdisciplinary, but encompass a multicultural perspective.

The program will strengthen your adaptive capabilities and resilience. Throughout the course, you can develop your international cooperation skills and global competence.

Course Components

Most courses include components like lectures, group discussions, tutorials and will be taught online or in a blended format.

Through group collaboration and synchronous interaction, you will work with peers from around the world in one online classroom.

Upon completion of the program, you will receive an official transcript and an e-certificate issued by Shanghai JiaoTong University.

The coursework will be delivered through Lark as well.
