Morena! Or good morning if it is morning where you are. We are getting to the end of this course. There are only two more lessons to go. So tino pai! Well done on getting this far. This is the 11th lesson, so welcome. In this lesson, you will watch a video called The Winds of Change. This is a project led by the University of Otago that brings together postgraduate students from New Zealand and Chile to investigate sustainable development strategies.
It is a very informative video and connects all of the SDGs. Do you remember the SDGs? The Sustainable Development Goals. Watch and learn and have fun at the same time. Kia pai to ra! Have a nice day.

In this lesson you will look at an educational programme led by the University of Otago, which brings together New Zealand and Chilean post-graduate students.
