Education for Sustainable Development Goals

Education for sustainable development aims to ensure everyone acquires the values, competencies, skills, and knowledge necessary to build a more sustainable society. This means reviewing teaching content to respond to global and local challenges. It should also encourage teaching methods that enable students to acquire interdisciplinary thinking, integrated planning, understanding complexity, collaborating with others in decision-making, and participating in local, national, and global processes for sustainable development. In this speech, we introduce mission 4.7, explain how to implement the sustainable development goals of a green school project, and the relation with STEAM.
