Event description
FREE workshop for educators: "Teaching with Sustainable Development Goals #11: Sustainable Communities"!

About this Event

World Savvy, in partnership with the California Global Education Project and San Joaquin County of Education, is proud to host Teaching with the Sustainable Development Goals, a one-day workshop for educators. The workshop will focus on Sustainable Development Goal #11: Sustainable Communities and offer teachers a framework for their students to better understand how to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

This hands-on workshop will offer teachers the opportunity to learn from and dialogue with experts in the field, explore resources to enhance and support their teaching of SDG #11, engage with colleagues, and begin building meaningful student learning experiences.

What are Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? The SDGs build on decades of work by countries and the UN, including the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. 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.
