Who’s responsible for the Global Goals?


August 25th, 2017

At Practical Action we believe it is everyone’s responsibility to work towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s)  or Global Goals as they are also known. As an International Development charity committed to alleviating global poverty we are working towards achieving a number of goals, including those focusing on renewable energy access , gender equality, water and sanitation, climate action and no hunger…to name a few!

What do young people think?

We recently asked young people from around Europe that very question during a 5 day workshop that formed part of  our Girls into Global STEM project and their answers were really interesting. The overall feedback was that they felt it was their responsibility on several levels, both in the choices they make individually e.g. around reducing waste and carbon footprint, but also in that in the future they will be the ones deciding which Government is in power. There was also a strong feeling that the Governments around the world were responsible and could be doing more…who can disagree with that!

Because of the real depth of critical thinking and discussion that resulted from this activity we thought other teachers around the world might like to use it too, so we decided to develop it into a freely available  teaching resource. Aimed at young people aged 10-18 It is a great activity for pupils who have some understanding of the Global Goals.

Please do take a look at ‘Who’s Responsible?’ and use it to give young people the chance to think about their role and the role of  others in ensure we reach those all important goals.

For other materials we have produced to develop understanding and promote action around the goals visit the Global Goals area of our website.
