UN Sustainable Development Goals


The Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognise that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.

In September, we took part in 'The World's Largest Lesson'. We learned all about the sustainable development goals and why they are important. We also thought about what we could do to help bring these goals about.

Each month, we will focus on one of these goals. Check out our news feed to find out what we have been learning.
