In 2015, the UN launched the Sustainable Development Goals: find out what they are and why they were devised here.

You will each make a bid to the class to persuade them of the importance of your allocated goal. You should explain why you believe your goal is the most important of the new sustainable development goal and therefore deserves the most funding. You have 2 minutes to explain what your goal means, and why it is so important.

But first, let’s talk about Communication ATLs.

  • What do you dislike about presenting in front of people?
  • What factors make a poor presentation?
  • What makes a good presentation?
  •  What tips do you have to help people with public speaking?

Each one of you will have one specific goal to focus on as they present in front of the class.

Hyperlink your goal here

Exercise 2

Now that we have an understanding of the SDGs

  • Are some more important in certain countries?
  • Are they realistic goals?
  • What issues might arise when trying to reach these goals?
  • How are they interconnected?

 

In groups of 3, you will create a flow chart using the hexagon handout, explaining the interconnectedness of the SDGs. 

  • You will use the extra hexagons to explain, in one sentence,  the link between each hexagon,
  • Use extra paper to do make more hexagons.
  • You may create clusters if you cannot find links
  • Include an explanation of any issues or “dead-end” you encounter, if you cannot make a link or if you find a flaw in the SDG.

Exercise 3

In your same groups, find a real world example of the following and explain it to the class:

  1. An SDG Initiative in a LIC that is currently successful
  2. An SDG Initiative in a LIC that is currently unsuccessful
  3. An HIC’s plan to tackle SDGs inside its country – explain and evaluate the plan
  4. An HIC’s plan to tackle SDGs outside its country – explain and evaluate the plan
  5. An example of a correlation you have discussed in exercise 2
  6. An example of a correlation you have discussed in exercise 2
  7. An example of a correlation you have discussed in exercise 2
