    A big number of people have been asking me questions like ‘What are Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?‘ or ‘Why should I work with SDGs?’ Interestingly enough, many people who asked work in education and are simply not familiar with the SDGs. 

    Considering where the world is at, I believe it is essential for all of us to know about the SDGs and to integrate them into our schools, businesses, kids’ education, our own discussions.

    So… WHAT are SDGs?

    To make it simple, Sustainable Development Goals tell us about issues existing in the world and the goals we need to reach in order to solve these issues and create a better, more sustainable world for the current and next generations.

    Basically, ‘SDGs’ is as ‘a universally agreed framework’ for us to understand better what world we live in, what we should work on and what will happen if we do and if we don’t.

    In numbers:

    2015 – the year when SDGs were launched

    17 – the number of Goals

    169 – the number of targets under all the Goals 

    WHY should you use SDGs? Here are 4 skills you (and your students, if you are an educator) develop when working with SDGs.  

    1. Real-world and Project-Based Learning (PBL). All students, no matter their age or subjects they take, lack the motivation to study if there’s no real-life application. SDGs as a framework provides a perfect base for combining theory and practice, and seeing how the students’ learning process results in impacting the world.

    the four skills would be the 4Cs (communication, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity) to develop 21st century learning and the 17 SDGs, it is time to act, take actions, we all have to be active for change so that others see that if we can achieve the 2030 Agenda.

      Absolutely! 4Cs are definitely a great set of skills that SDGs help develop.
