KU-SDG Ambassador Program

The KU-SDG Ambassador Program is a co-curricular program to teach students about innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership with a focus on sustainability through a series of workshops. The program also helps to build upon the university’s membership into the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network and introduce the UN-SDGs to students; equipping them with the knowledge to contribute towards giving back to the community.

After an introductory session in Fall and Spring, workshops are organized every few weeks that address one of the categories outlined and presents a scenario on issues pertinent to the problems addressed. Each one relates to the SDGs of the session and provides a task for participants to research, evaluate, and monitor the development and progress of the SDGs in the UAE and from a global perspective wherever is appropriate, as well as to innovate, be an entrepreneur, and lead a community project, where possible.
