SJTU SDG July Camp

The 2024 SJTU SDG July Camp is coming up soon! Don't miss this great opportunity to work online with students from around the world on finding solutions to sustainability challenges.


The SJTU SDG July Camp is an online program that integrates the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) within a multidisciplinary framework, engaging a diverse body of students over a series of collaborative and interdisciplinary online courses, lectures and activities. With a shared vision for a sustainable future, the program has been supported by The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).  


This annual online program has been well-received by students since its very first round, and it continues to improve year on year. The feedback from the latest SJTU SDG July Camp in 2023 found that 96% of the participants rated their experience above four stars on a five-star scale.


In 2024, the SJTU July Camp will offer 17 SDG-related courses. Through collaborative online international learning (COIL), you will engage in a virtual community and work with peers from around the world through group discussions, team work, and/or group projects. You will learn more about pressing problems in the world and formulate possible solutions. The student-oriented learning format will enable you to develop international cooperation skills and global competence.


If you are interested in the UN SDGs, enjoy meeting peers from around the world, and sorting out challenges in an online classroom setting, these courses are just RIGHT for you!
