This collection of teacher resources addresses the Sustainable Development Goals or “SDGs.” UN members established the SDGs in 2015 to build on the progress of the Millennium Development Goals. The 17 goals that comprise the SDGs add up to three major objectives: to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and sustain both the Earth and our common prosperity. The resources on this page educate students on the SDGs and empower them to join the movement to tackle the world’s most pressing problems. For more resources like these, visit The World’s Largest Lesson (see below), an initiative launched by the Global Goals campaign and UNICEF to teach children in over 100 countries about the SDGs.
The World’s Largest Lesson (TES / Partners: UNICEF, Global Goals Campaign)
“In September 2015 World Leaders committed to the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. 17 goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years. End extreme poverty. Fight inequality and injustice. Fix climate change. If every school in the world teaches children about these goals, we will help them become the generation that changed the world.”
