Sustainable Development Goals
In light of the of the importance of the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030 (SDGs) and their relation to the fields of science, technology and engineering, SEADSTEM is making the effort to connect the STEM resources provided on the platform to the SDGs themes. This will allow teachers to show the broader application and real-world context of the activities and also raise awareness about the SDGs and their issues. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.
At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
