ACT!. Taking action in schools for a more sustainable world through Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) encompass 17 objectives established by the United Nations with the aim of addressing the world’s most significant challenges by 2030.
These goals serve as a valuable framework for understanding and addressing urgent global issues. Challenges such as malnutrition, gender inequality, poverty, climate change, and injustice require action from everyone, particularly the younger generation.
With over 40% of the global population falling within the age range of 10 to 24, this represents the largest youth population ever. In order to find solutions to global issues, it is essential for the next generation to be aware of these problems. A constructive approach to achieving this is by educating them about the SDGs.
The ACT project is dedicated to developing the necessary tools and methodologies that enable children and teachers from different countries, diverse educational backgrounds, and cultural contexts, to collaboratively engage in addressing global topics related to the Sustainable Development GOals. This project emphasizes a co-creative approach, fostering collaboration and joint efforts towards sustainable development.
