Introducing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

“The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice.” 
https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/

The Middle School students were introduced to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals this week to begin to develop an understanding of what each goal means as well as establish the connections between them. There are 17 goals in total. A stimulus package was presented to the students that gave them a range of challenges and problems that are currently in the media. Amongst other things, these included the problems we face with plastic in the environment, the fish deaths in the Murray Darling River System as well as the changes we are experiencing in our climate.

Students were asked to identify which of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals could be identified in each of the stimulus materials provided and then justify their reasoning. It quickly became apparent that most of the issues examined were complex in nature and involved aspects of a number of goals.

“The shrewd guess, the fertile hypothesis, the courageous leap to a tentative conclusion - these are the most valuable coins of the thinker at work. But in most schools guessing is heavily penalized and is associated somehow with laziness.”
