Teaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): 17 goals to transform our world and our classroom

How much do you know about the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (or Global Goals)? What relevance do they have to your school and community? This course will give you insight into what the goals are and how you can use them within your school setting.

Come along to this vital new course and gain extra expertise to enable your pupils, school and community to become active global citizens and contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). You will learn how the SDGs can contribute to your development of a clear school framework, and underpin your teaching and learning, your school's ethos and your school's community.

This is all part of the CDEC's ethos to help you and your school to Act Local, Think Global. 

The session is an active one, with plenty of opportunity for you and the group to discuss and share your ideas and experiences with each other. And will increase your awareness of the SDGs - what they are, how they came to be. 

It will also help you:

  • develop an understanding of the SDGs
  • understand why they are important for the future of young people and the world
  • embed the SDGs in your teaching and learning, school ethos and community
  • enable your children, school and community to become active and responsible global citizens.

What are the Sustainable Development Goals?

In 2015, 193 world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, schools, people young and old, to work together to build a better future for everyone.
