Distinct from the Campus Learning Community, the 1st Annual
Changemaker Week (September 17 - 24, 2023) at Miami Dade College (MDC)
will explore the following SIX Sustainable Development Goals:

*Goal 3: Good Health & Wellbeing*
(explored with a Campus Learning Community in 2021-22)

Goal 4: Quality Education

Goal 8: Decent Work & Economic Growth

Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities

*Goal 13: Climate Action*
(explored with a Campus Learning Community in 2022-23)

Goal 16: Peace, Justice & Strong Institutions


Thanks to all for making the 2022-2023 Campus Learning Community a success!

Together, we explored UN SDG 13: Climate Action -- considering positive actions that we can take urgently to address climate change and its impacts.
In 2023-2024, we plan to continue the approach of considering across campuses an environmental sustainability topic of choice 
-- possibly another one of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) OR one of the four pillars of the Earth Charter.
YOUR input will help shape the next Campus Learning Community!

By participating in the Campus Learning Community,students may earn points toward the Civic Action Award through MDC’s Civic Action Scorecard (Civic Action ES-18). Faculty participating in Global Sustainability and Earth Literacy Studies (GSELS) learning network might want to join or host Climate Action events!

Land Acknowledgement

At Miami Dade College we acknowledge the indigenous peoples on whose land we stand.The Miccosukee and the Seminole tribes who remain unconquered, and the Tequesta Tribe, who first occupied the land that is now downtown Miami and so represent ties to both our prehistoric and historic past. Miami Dade College is grateful for the unique knowledge and ways of being—as well as the profound connection to our South Florida ecosystems—that these indigenous tribes represent. We look forward to strengthening our relationship with both Miami’s indigenous peoples as well as the natural world.
