Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Introduction

13/03/2018

What if there was a tool we could use to build peaceful and sustainable societies for all? In a world with growing inequalities, the Sustainable Development Goals may provide the means to overcome these challenges and to transform our communities. But… what are they? What do they mean to us? How can we put these Goals into practice?

 

All students and community organisations are invited to come along to this informal workshop on these 17 Global Goals. This fun and interactive session will share the basics of the Sustainable Development Goals and explore their relevance in our daily lives.

Thursday 22nd March

6.00pm-7.30pm

Library meeting room: ground floor

Hot Dinner will be served at 7.30pm!

To book your slot in the workshop please email alive@nuigalway.ie

World Vision Ireland, as part of the ‘Make Ireland Sustainable For All’ Project works with young people across universities in Ireland to build awareness, and promote action on the Sustainable Development Goals at community level.

  • We provide workshops, screenings and awareness raising sessions around Ireland to inform, engage and inspire students on the Sustainable Development Goals and how to implement them. 
  • We provide small grants, up to €1000, to student networks and groups to take action to promote and implement the Sustainable Development Goals locally.
