Free, online course on Early Childhood Development for Sustainable Development
As parents, you know that the early years of your child’s life are incredibly important for their development. But did you know that these years are the most important to their long-term well-being? And do you know the cutting-edge research in psychology, neuroscience, health, and education that underpins the importance of these years?
The SDG Academy invites you to join our newest 8-week course––The Best Start in Life: Early Childhood Development for Sustainable Development. The free online course covers the science behind early childhood, the state of the world’s children, and policies and programs from countries around the world that are working to enable all children to reach their full potential.

The course provides important information for current or soon-to-be parents!
