Event Description: 

Sustainable Development Goals

Join us for a 2-week deep dive into the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Together, we will investigate this framework and apply the Global Goals to local, regional, and global contexts. We will build upon our own knowledge of self, community, and place in order to deepen and refine our understanding of education for sustainability. Guest presenters from the UN’s Network of Regional Centers for Expertise in Education for Sustainable Development will bring additional perspectives to the discourse. Selections from Shelburne Farms’ Healthy Neighborhoods/Healthy Kids curriculum will be used as a starting point as we apply the SDGs to our own communities. Participants will design a community-based project for youth voice and agency that generates local action for global solutions.
