All questions are fair and square
WHAT ARE THE SDGS?
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.
WHO CAN LEARN THE SDGS?
All students in any grade level can learn about the SDGs in age-appropriate ways with the bevy of free activities, curricula, and classroom activities now available. Together, with teachers and students, we can be a powerful force for achieving the UN's vision of a more peaceful, healthy and equitable world.
WHEN WOULD THE SDGS COMPLETE?
2030 is the year set to achieve all SDGs. That is why the 2030 Agenda is universal, applying to all countries and actors. It requires all nations to take climate action, reduce unemployment, strengthen gender equality and promote peaceful societies, to name a few, if the world is to eradicate poverty and shift into a more sustainable development.
