The Global Learning Partnership (GLP) is a unique global student placement experience that aims to bring together staff and students from various academic institutions across the world in order to learn about and contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Through an international partnership and shared learning activities, the GLP generates mutually beneficial educational experiences for participants focused around the UN SDGs, leadership, building community capacity and advocacy.
