This course is designed for educators or anyone who would like to teach young people about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The Sustainable Development Goals — also known as the SDGs or the Global Goals — cover a wide range of sustainability issues; highlighting local, national and international priority areas to end poverty and hunger, improve health and education, make cities more sustainable and combat climate change.
This guide will provide you with clear information, educational resources and other supports to help you in your efforts to educate and engage young people so that they support the Sustainable Development Goals and are inspired to turn their support into action. This guide will also explore how you can incorporate the different topics covered by each goal into your lessons across multiple subjects.
You don’t need any prior knowledge or experience of the United Nations, international development, or the Sustainable Development Goals to use this guide. It can be referred to in whole or as individual parts to suit your curriculum.
