Sulitest is a movement whose mission is to support expanded sustainability knowledge, skills and mindset that motivates individuals to become deeply committed to building a sustainable future and to make informed and effective decisions.
Inspired by the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, RIO + 20, Sulitest is a tangible implementation of HESI (Higher Education Sustainability Initiative) and a featured initiatives of the UN Partnerships for the SDGs. Sulitest has an Observer status to the UN Environment Assembly (Accreditation 430/218) and a Special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council since 2019.
The Awareness Test is in an easy-to-use, on-line, multiple choice question format that consists of an international set of 28 questions (the “International Core Module”) randomly selected from an expert-approved database. Each “Test” question is based on a matrix including an extensive variety of topics - approved by an independent board - and aligned with one or more goals of the Global Agenda, helping to create the largest database mapping citizens' awareness of the SDGs.
Initially deployed in the academic world, more than 135,000 students from in 68 countries have already taken versions of the Awareness Test, and access to Sulitest.org tools has been expanded to any kind of organization (Corporations, NGO, Institutions…).
In 2023, Sulitest launched TASK™, the first international assessment of sustainability knowledge, as a powerful lever for systemic change.
Sulitest relies on an active community that grows rapidly. Follow the links provided below to use the Sulitest resources and enter the community.
WHY USE THE AWARENESS TEST?
- FOR STUDENTS AND CITIZENS
A perfect tool to measure and benchmark literacy and learn more!Sulitest empowers individuals to gauge their sustainability literacy, serving as a crucial initial step before selecting relevant courses. By fostering awareness, it enables individuals to make informed and impactful decisions in both their personal and professional lives.
- FOR ACADEMICS AND PROFESSIONALS
Academics and professionals are able to adapt test sessions based on the audience. In addition to the “International Core Module”, optional “Specialized Modules” of 20-questions each focus on either a specific geographic area, or a specific topic. A geographic module considers national, regional and cultural specificities (environment, laws and practices). Examples of topical modules are the ones created by UNDESA, on the SDG process and on SDG7 (Energy); the one created by the UN Environment (IETC) on SDG11 focusing on Holistic Waste Management; or the one created by UN Environment on SDG12 focusing on Circular Economy. Other tools include a 10-questions interactive gaming tool (the “Quiz”), a 10-questions introductive MCQ (the “Explorer”), and “Customized Modules” that can be created by the organisation with questions specific to their needs (organizational, classroom, training, other). Looping by Sulitest is a new interface and reverse pedagogy tool to better understand the SDGs and their links to specific topics by the co-creation of Sulitest-like questions.The interface allows peer-learning and peer-evaluation to foster collective intelligence and critical thinking.
