We are always more than happy to hear what our friends in our network are up to and this week we learned about a new initiative being launched by our American friends, Belouga.
Belouga, the global education platform, is launching a new educational series focused on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals called Mission 2030: The Global Goals. The series will be available on September 20th, 2018, and align with Global Goals Week beginning on September 22nd, 2018.
