Teach4Reach: Teaching the Global Goals

This research project explores how teacher education programmes in the Global South and the Global North can be leveraged to support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by raising awareness about the SDGs in teachers and teacher educators, crafting future-focused research agendas on quality education, gender equality, reducing inequality and good health and wellbeing, building international collaborative networks to support the SDGs and supporting scientific knowledge development on the SDGs in the education domain.

In this inclusive project, a series of online (and in-person where possible) webinars that are coupled with research colloquia, workshops and knowledge dissemination events takes place over a period of two years (April 2021 – March 2023). Researchers from the University of Pretoria (Irma Eloff and Kgadi Mathabathe), the University of Innsbruck (Ann-Kathrin Dittrich) and the University of Vienna (Evi Agostini) collaborate on the project. The focus of the project is on four SDGs: Quality education (SDG 4), Gender equality (SDG 5), Reduced Inequality (SDG 10) and Good health and wellbeing (SDG 3).
