Democratising Education for
Global Sustainability and Justice

Our Mission

This programme aims to democratise education on sustainable development law and policy and to strengthen capacity by developing online courses. The Programme seeks to widen participation by making these online courses available worldwide to current and future law and policy leaders, and by convening and supporting global engagement and communities of practice.
