Welcome to Week 2


In Week 1 you learnt about what sustainability means according to the United Nations. You also went through 3 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): No Poverty, Zero Hunger, and Good Health and Well-Being. You watched videos about how the University of Otago carries out these goals within their campus, and learnt new vocabulary in order to discuss sustainable practices in your institution, or community.

In Week 2, you are going to learn the remaining 14 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The University of Otago will explain how each of these goals is carried out, or implemented into everyday life around its campus. You will learn new vocabulary and phrases related to sustainable practices and discuss some questions about your community.

Over to you:

  • Which Sustainability Development Goals are you most excited to learn about?
  • What do you think their main challenges and opportunities are with sustainability?

Share your ideas with fellow learners.
