I enjoyed the 'story of sustainability' course. I finished the course having learnt / understood many more important details, facts, figures and actions about the sustainable development journey since 2000. This course has helped me appreciate the urgency of the SDGs for the world and how 'accelerated' individual, corporate and government action and commitment is crucial in the period 2020-2030.
