This propject introduces the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to students by exercising fundamentals of geography and social studies.
In March 2012, the world population topped seven billion people. As our population continues to grow, natural resources are dwindling due to human consumption, and the resources that remain are unequally distributed. More than ever, our world needs thoughtful, engaged, global citizens to address the world’s growing crises.
The UN SDG Map project will ground you with fundamental reading, research, and writing skills necessary to enter into the global conversation. Through project-based inquiry, you will study the greatest challenges facing our planet, practice the principles needed to achieve the SDG targets, and create a map that communicates your discoveries and encourages viewers to question their assumptions about the world.
