What are the SDGs?

The United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development – more commonly known as the SDGs – were launched in September 2015. They represent an ambitious, integrated framework aiming to end poverty, protect our planet, and ensure future prosperity by 2030.

On 1st of January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, officially came into force. The SDGs mean that young people today will live in a world shaped by their legacy. Now is the perfect time to support teachers to empower their students, but also to directly engage with students and help them reconnect to their planet, understand their impact on it and take action to protect it.



The cost of this training weekend is just £25 per teacher. This includes all training, materials, food and accommodation. A number of free places are available for those working in disadvantaged communities.
