The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s SDG Scholars Program helps students to dive deeper into their knowledge of the SDGs, engage with peers from different communities, create original content and action plans, among other aspects. Critically, it also helps students expand their professional networks and explore career possibilities.

The “global” and “local” expert aspect of the program brings students together with professionals around the U.S. and world to learn about diverse approaches toward achieving the SDGs, allows them to learn about meaningful career options, as well as grow their local and worldwide professional networks. For SDG Action and Awareness week, we are making these sessions open to the public. Join us to see what our program is like and to hear from a professional working towards one or more of the SDGs in their day-to-day work.

Global Expert Florencio Venté Coha is a Colombian youth leader and impact entrepreneur residing in Brazil.
