World leaders have committed to 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to help make the world safer, fairer and more just for everyone. The goals aim to accomplish three things by 2030:
- tackle extreme poverty
- fight inequality and injustice
- protect the planet.
This resource from the British Council challenges you and your students (perhaps working with partner schools) to discuss the goals and think of practical solutions to contribute to a more sustainable world. Exploring the themes of the SDGs is a great way to get your students thinking about their wider community and environment, while also delving into the life obstacles faced by others.
