About The UN SDGs
The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Agenda, adopted in 2015, includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030. The SDGs provide a framework to understand how we can move toward a more sustainable future. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
UN SDGs At Glendale
At Glendale, we have incorporated the UN Sustainable Development Goals into our learning environment. Throughout our lesson and activity plans, students are made aware of the various SDGs that their efforts are a part of. An example of this would be our lake cleaning activities which teach children about the environment, chemical composition of lakes, the industrial environment and about the relevant SDG. We believe that engaging students through this immersive approach to SDGs makes them more mindful of the global impact of their activities.
