Practical Action: global goals

A range of materials to support pupils' engagement in the Global Goals.

The Global  Goals (also known as the Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs) were put together by the United Nations in September 2015. These 17 goals aim to end world poverty  by 2030. We have produced a range of different materials to support teachers in helping pupils understand the Global Goals and their targets:  why they are important in reducing world poverty, and how pupils can take action themselves to help achieve them.

Materials are suitable for students aged 7-18.
