GLOBAL GOALS FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
In 2015 The Sustainable Development Goals were launched by the UN. They are ambitious targets to end poverty, combat climate change and fight injustice and inequality by the year 2030. These Global Goals are not just for poorer countries but are for all countries, and they provide a framework and targets for Governments across the world.
The issues which the SDGs seek to change are issues which affect young people, now and in the future, and we will be using these goals to link with curriculum work in the ECO committee in school and in the wider community in an attenpt to bring about positive change. We hope that we can do our bit to help in achieving these goals, by ‘thinking local, acting global.’
