UNITED NATIONS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
In 2015, UN countries adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
This lesson ties in nicely with SDG 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10, which are about zero hunger, good health/well-being, quality education, gender equality, clean water and sanitation, and reduced inequalities, at all ages.
We at Lyfta believe that it is imperative for our children to know what the SDGs are and to feel empowered to make a positive contribution to a better and more sustainable world.
