Feedback form is now closed.
In September 2015, the world came together in New York to adopt the 2030 Agenda, which seeks to end extreme poverty, inequality, and combat climate change by 2030. Here, the Centre for Global Education will provide resources to help you understand the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), so that you can engage them within your classrooms. In this session, through hands-on learning, educators will explore how the SDGs offer teachers a framework for their students to better understand global issues and to engage as problem solvers in a knowledge-to-action framework. We will offer teachers the opportunity to learn from and dialogue with experts in the field and explore resources to enhance and support teaching the Sustainable Development Goals. During the session, teachers will have the opportunity to engage with colleagues and begin building meaningful student learning experiences.
