Educating for the SDGs, funded by the Government of Canada’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Funding Program, is a one-year initiative to support Canadian educators working on issues of global citizenship. Working in partnership with the Aga Khan Museum, this program will explore the sustainable development goals (SDGs) through arts and culture.
The project will address the following two objectives:
- Enhance multi-stakeholder efforts by promoting partnerships and bridging efforts across sectors in support of the 2030 Agenda.
- Raise awareness and support for the 2030 Agenda in Canada.
Using the Aga Khan Museum’s collection and case studies from our work, lessons plans will be created to explore themes of good health and well-being (SDG 3), gender equality (SDG 5), clean water (SDG 6), and life on land (SDG #15). Live (virtual) and on-demand professional development workshops based on this content will empower and equip teachers to use these resources in their classrooms and provide teachers access to a valuable community of practice.
To ensure that this program is inclusive and responsive to community and teacher needs, a multi-stakeholder advisory committee will be engaged to provide feedback at all steps of the program.
