Well done for getting to the end of Week 2. We hope you have enjoyed our videos and articles on sustainability and health, and have reflected on the major challenges our world faces.

As we saw at the beginning of this week, health is intractably linked to conflict, but it is also linked to many of the other SDGs. Next week we will be looking at two highly important areas: water and sanitation, and sustainable cities.

We will be exploring case studies from India and Ireland, and you will learn about the challenges communities face to sustain cities, and clean water and sanitation.

Now that you have finished Week 2, take a minute to think about one new piece of information you have learned and share it in the comments.
