17 tiles each with a sustainable development goal
social and emotional learning

 

On September 25th 2015, countries adopted a set of goals (United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals - SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.

 

For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part. These Goals will be a part of collaborative projects developed and undertaken by Student Global Teams. 

 

Social & Emotional Learning is the process through which children/adults learn to acquire and apply knowledge attitudes, and skills needed to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. This process will be essential for Global Teams to effectively collaborate to address the SDGs).
