This week students in Norway are preparing for a visit to the United States to work on the 17 Global Goals together with students at Lindenhurst high school. The students will be talking to government representatives and participating in school activities. The goal is to involve young people in important issues. They are the future, our best chance of a sustainable future is to involve this generation. This is a relevant and engaging project and here is our plan to prepare:
- Watch these videos, and look at the websites below.
- Use the material to come up with a plan for your group. Share your ideas on the Padlet below.
- Brainstorm in your group how to spread your ideas to others around the world.
- How do you propose to implement your plan?
- What are your goals and how do you visualize the outcome.
- Share this in a video on your blog.
Can we end hunger and poverty, halt climate change and achieve gender equality in the next 15 years? The governments of the world think we can. Meeting at the UN in September 2015, they agreed to a new set of Global Goals for the development of the world to 2030. Social progress expert Michael Green invites us to imagine how these goals and their vision for a better world can be achieved.
