About this course
This course on SDG 7 – Affordable and clean energy– allows for a learner to get a holistic and global understanding of the role of the current transition towards clean and sustainable sources of energy. The learner will have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the five targets of this goal and assess both their own household’s energy use, as well as their home country’s energy mix. They will furthermore engage in experiential exercises, such as the use of an energy journal, and plan an excursion to a nearby power plant. In a globalising world, students will need to think critically, globally and in terms of whole systems. This course supports Ubiquity’s mission in building those skills.
Larissa Demel has published papers on social innovation through youth action on the SDGs and her proposals are being implemented by over 50,000 young people in 126 countries. She has also created a SDG social project framework for young people, and has been a contributor to the Young Person’s Guide to Saving the World.
Our courses are appropriate for those individuals who are interested in a quick, high-level overview of each SDG and include opportunities for learning about the SDG, reflecting on their personal beliefs and values around the SDG in question, and ways to take immediate action on working towards solving them.

- Understand SDG 7 – Affordable and Clean Energy in the wider global context
- Self-reflect on your values and attitudes about affordable and clean energy
- Develop a simple plan of action to begin to create change in your local community
