Assembly on SDGs

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are 17 goals defined by the United Nations to tackle the world's biggest problems by 2030. The goals form a useful lens through which we can look at the most pressing global issues. Hundreds of millions of people don't have enough food to eat; women still earn less than men and have fewer rights; plant and animal species are rapidly vanishing; and the gap between rich and poor is getting wider. More than 40 per cent of the global population are between the ages of ten and 24 – the largest youth population ever. To solve the world's problems, the next generation needs to know what those problems are. A good way to ensure this is to teach them about the SDGs. An assembly was held by students of Standard 8th D. The topic was “Responsible Consumption and Production” which was directly linked to the 12th goal of Sustainable Development. Students sensitized their peers towards conservation of water, natural vegetation and power through an emotional skit. #Sustainable Development Goals #Zebar School
