Overview

About Sustainable Development Goals - Peace and Security at Massey University

The SDGs are the UN’s ambitious macro-level plan for humankind’s development and sustainability. The goals address global challenges including those related to poverty and inequality, climate and environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice.

All students take two core courses in sustainable development. The first will introduce you to the theories of sustainable development and the SDGs. The second focuses on multi-disciplinary frameworks. The courses will also focus on how to measure progress against the SDGs, as well as alternative and indigenous paradigms, knowledge and practice in the field of sustainability.

Careers

There is strong demand in the global marketplace for workers with the skills to translate, implement, monitor and report on the SDGs. Increasing recognition peace and security-related issues has led to an increase in demand for graduates with skills and knowledge in this field.

There is a growing gap in the development sector amongst those who have expertise in security issues versus those with expertise in humanitarian response. This gap needs to be closed, especially as we see increasing pressures from climate insecurities on populations. This is highly relevant to New Zealand and the Pacific Reset. This need has led to increased demand for experts in the fields of:

  • Climate change and security
  • Migration
  • International Security
