Global Goals, Local Action
Nearly 200 countries have signed on to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, which aim for a better, healthier world by 2030. The 17 SDGs are ambitious, from No Poverty and Zero Hunger to Gender Equality and Climate Action.
This experience challenges students to think about and discuss which goals feel most urgent to them and why. They’ll also learn how people around the globe are taking action to advance the goals.
We’ll divide students into groups of about 15. We encourage teachers to pre-divide their students, if possible.
