HUMAN GEOGRAPHY ACTIVITIES TO SUPPORT THE SDGS
January 10 @ 7:00 pm - 7:45 pm
With the adoption of the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, countries laid out a vision for supporting the well-being of all the world’s people, as well as the environment. In this hands-on/minds-on session, the presenter will engage participants in a classroom activity that introduces students to the SDGs – the aims, importance, and status – as well as the interconnections among the different goals. She will also facilitate activities for the classroom that take a deeper look into global inequities as they relate to energy use and climate resilience, and more localized inequities related to waste disposal. Participants will also engage in an activity that examines “needs vs. wants” and how this differs among communities here and around the globe.
