Sustainable Development Goals

Young People and the Sustainable Development Goals

The seventeen Sustainable Development Goals are hugely important for the future wellbeing of all people, and for the integrity of the biosphere. It is clear that education has a key role to play, not only in helping people understand the significance of the goals, but also in helping to ensure that the goals, and their targets, are achieved.

We already know that a number of schools have programmes focusing on this, but if goal-related learning by students can help increase the likelihood that the goals will be valued, supported and hence realised, is it also the case that a critical study of the goals can enhance the focus, and help raise the quality of student learning? This Consultation examined these twin propositions. We looked in depth at what good goal-related outcomes might be; and explored what more can be done to embed a focus on the SDGs in work with young people both in and out of school.

 

Supporting farmers post brexit

Supporting Farmers Post-Brexit

In March, the Prime Minister triggered Article 50, formally beginning the UK’s negotiations to leave the European Union. These are uncharted waters but there is little doubt that potentially seismic changes lie ahead.

UK agriculture will face a range of challenges in the years ahead.

While the government has guaranteed the financial status quo until 2020, the sector needs to look much further ahead. What are the potential threats and opportunities relevant to farmers in the post-Brexit world? How will the transition be managed? What scenarios are likely to emerge and what support needs to be in place to accommodate them? The implications go beyond the purely economic outcome of Brexit.

The full report from the consultation can be read here.

This week-long Consultation brought together young people across the world who are involved in the Roots and Shoots Programme devised by the Jane Goodall Institute. The focus of the week was for the professional development of each participant with particular emphasis on leadership.

There was also a series of high-level presentations on topics of relevance to the Institute as a way of engendering debate and discussion.

The consultation aimed to:

  • Facilitate international relationships and collaboration between critical Roots & Shoots global leaders.
  • Foster growth by sharing global Roots & Shoots stories and impacts.
  • Enhance globally relevant skills that will facilitate the spread of Roots & Shoots in our respective countries.
  • Collaborate on global initiatives so that they reflect the true global voice of the Roots & Shoots programme.
