Global Project Ideas

September 29th, 2017

Personally I don’t think there could be a better way of engaging young people with issues around poverty than giving them the opportunity to explore potential solutions themselves.

If you agree then you will be pleased to know we have some new resources to help student do exactly that!!   Our Global Project ideas provide inspiring starting point for projects, with a focus on how STEM ( Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths)  skills can help us achieve the Global Goals, or sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The materials are perfect for the CREST award scheme and can also be used as the basis of an extended project, or for the skills element of the Duke of Edinburgh award. They can also lead to great projects to be entered into the Big Bang Fair competition.

We selected 5 global goals we feel have a particular STEM focus.

Global Goal 2 – Zero HungerGlobal Project Ideas from Practical Action

Global Goal 5 – Gender Equality

Global Goal 6 – Clean Water and Sanitation

Global Goal 7 – Affordable and Clean Energy

Global Goals 11 – Sustainable Cities and Communities

The Global Project Ideas sheets material provide suggestions for starting points for projects plus also really useful weblinks to help  pupils with their research.

To find out more about the Global Goals themselves go to either the main UN site or a more schools focused site

To see how you can get engaged in the CREST awards scheme go to the CREST area of our website

If you do use these with your pupils please do let us know…we love feedback!
