Everyone knows that education has a role to play in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and there is to be a St George’s House Consultation on the theme of Young People and the SDGs on 30 November / 1 December. The organisers say:
We already know that a number of schools have programmes focusing on this, but if goal-related learning by students can help increase the likelihood that the goals will be valued, supported and hence realised, is it also the case that a critical study of the goals can enhance the focus, and help raise the quality of student learning? This Consultation will examine these twin propositions. We will look in depth at what good goal-related outcomes might be; and we will explore what more can be done to embed a focus on the SDGs in work with young people both in and out of school.
