The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were set in the year 2000 at a United Nations summit. The targets were ambitious, but realistic, and all have a deadline of 2015. There are eight Goals, each of which has at least one ‘target’, from which progress can be measured.
This resource consists of one five-minute film clip and a downloadable infographic which explore the original goals of the United Nations summit and the progress that has been made towards achieving each goal. This is the first of a two-part presentation and evaluates progress made towards MDGs one to four, which focus on: poverty and hunger; education; gender equality; and child mortality.
The aim of this resource is to support teachers’ knowledge of development but it would also be useful to use in Geography at Key Stage 3 (ages 11-14).
