The SDG Society Project, partially funded by the US Department of State as a part of the YES Alumni Grants, and supported by American Councils for International Education and AFS Intercultural Programs India, focuses on raising awareness and inducing action among school students regarding the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are spearheaded by the United Nations. In consultation with educationists and SDG experts, we design, develop and carry out training modules and workshops on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the school students in and across India. Our workshops ] focus on incorporating sustainable practices in day-to-day lives. As a part of our long term strategy, we are looking towards creating a culture of youth engagement in developmental work in schools.
We hold classroom awareness campaigns aided by various presentations, interactive modules and fun games. The campaigns are followed by an action module where we help the students organize small group meetings to share their ideas, evaluate their viability and help achieve global goals through solving local issues. Our initiative of linking educational institutions and the SDGs through schoolchildren is helping build community level groups designing local solutions suited to cater to their problems.
