Event description

Description

How can the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) support us in our work? How can we contribute to the delivery of the SDGs in Scotland and beyond?

In 2015 all United Nation member states signed up to 17 ambitious, universal Sustainable Development Goals. The aim of the SDGs is to encourage all countries to implement the necessary transformational environmental, economic and social change to achieve peace and prosperity for planet and people. Scottish Government was one of the first to sign up to the Goals and they now underpin the National Outcomes.

“By 2030, ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development.' UN 2015

This workshop will offer a critical introduction to the emergence of the SDGs, capture case studies of relevant work underway and explore how learning for sustainability can help us appreciate the interconnectedness of the SDGs more widely.
