If you made a list of goals to make our world a better place, what would be on it? Ending poverty? Tackling climate change and environmental degradation? Achieving gender equality? What would be your priorities and why?

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of ambitious and urgent goals and targets aimed at changing our world for the better. Packed with practical advice, useful information, cross-curricular activity ideas and inspiring case studies; this guide aims to deepen teachers’ understanding of education about and for the SDGs.

Consider the relevance of the SDGs for learners, schools and the wider community; and explore how a global citizenship education approach can underpin good practice. Support young people to take ownership, have agency and build empathy; assess learners’ progress; and investigate the links with educational priorities such as values, pupil leadership and voice, curriculum development and collaborating with the local community.

Discover the rich breadth of ways in which learners can engage with the SDGs.
