Millennium Development Goals 5–8

KS3: ages 11-14WebsiteFilm

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 second of a two-part presentation and evaluates progress made towards MDGs five to eight, which focus on: maternal health, infectious disease, sustainability and global partnership.

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).
