Since 2015, Kevin has been helping Earth Rights Institute do research for various programs. His work has included updating our online course "Become a Leader in Sustainability" to reflect the latest UN positions on sustainable development now known as the UN Global Goals. The new data we provide now on our online course replaces the information we had before 2016 about the UN Millenimum Goals. Due to our large array of programs we have going on, ERI is in need of people like Kevin to use their research skills to help us move things forward.
