We can come to your university/college/organisation to conduct an SDG workshop or training for you!

If you would like Gaia Education to come to your university/college (or other tertiary educational facility or organisation) and conduct a workshop for you with an experienced, local Gaia Education SDG Trainer/Multiplier we are more than happy to make that happen. Indicative costs for a 1-day face to face SDG workshop at universities are approximately 20 to 25 Euros/Pounds per person (which is applicable only for Europe/UK and excludes additional costs like travel and other variable disbursements). Costs in other regions of the world vary greatly but in any case get in touch with us if you wish to conduct an SDG workshop or multiplier training at your institution wherever you are, by completing the contact form linked below. We are also more than happy to work with you on the development of bespoke workshops or other formats of delivering the SDG and other aspects of our extensive whole systems based sustainability and regeneration courses and curricula (more on Gaia Education), to fit your needs.

A concise description of Gaia Education's offers for universities/colleges can be found in a leaflet below for download, which you can utilise for use with your lecturers, professors, course coordinators, course administrators, or others who you may want to get excited about conducting SDG workshops at your institution.
