The SDSN Academic Advisory Committee, launched in 2015, comprises 10-12 representatives from academia, intergovernmental organizations, and civil society, all of whom are drawn from different parts of the SDSN community. The Academic Advisory Committee supports the design and dissemination of educational materials for sustainable development. In the future, the committee will also advise the SDSN Education Team and the Leadership Council of the SDSN on education initiatives and new opportunities in SDSN educational offerings.
