27 February 2019 | 11:30 - 12:00 | English | #INN4SDGs - Innovate for the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals
As teachers, we are constantly promoting students to critically think and develop ideas throughout the school day. But what if their ideas could serve a larger cause? What if their ideas could change the world? The #INN4SDGs initiative promotes students and teachers to use their innovative thinking skills to solve some of the world’s greatest challenges and ultimately help humanity for the greater good. The aim of this workshop is to provide a platform for delegates to learn, collaborate and share lesson ideas that will serve the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. These ideas can then be used in classrooms and projects to promote students to contribute to making the world a better place for all.
