Act Now for the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Science on Stage has produced a new digital publication on the Sustainable Development Goals for schools.

Act Now for the UN Sustainable Development Goals ā€“ Logo

Sustainability and environmental protection are important topics for students throughout Europe. How we deal with these issues will shape our future. Motivated and skilled teachers are the key to enabling students to meet the challenges of tomorrow. This will enable them not only to understand the problems, but also to think about possible solutions.

Science on Stage launched the international two-year project "Act Now for the UN Sustainable Development Goals" in 2020 in which 20 teachers from 11 countries worked together to develop and test ideas on how to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in STEM lessons. The aim was to create concrete and hands-on teaching concepts that encourage students to become active and responsible citizens while promoting their interest in STEM subjects. To engage students from primary to secondary school with these materials and use them in different subjects, the authors developed digital teaching units covering a wide range of topics such as climate change, smart cities, sustainable materials and responsible food production.

Interested teachers have access to videos and various interactive materials that they can use directly with their students. So teachers will not only get inspiration and ideas about concrete SDG related topics but also on how to use digital tools with their classes.

The educational material "Act Now for the UN Sustainable Development Goals" is published on 14 October 2022 and is available here: https://www.science-on-stage.eu/act-now-sdg.
