End extreme poverty. Fight inequality and injustice. Fix climate change.
In September 2015 World Leaders committed to the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. The United Nations announced 17 goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years. If every school in the world teaches these goals to its children, we will help them become the generation that changed the world.
So what can you do to help your students understand these issues?
