The Teach SDGs Project
The Global Goals Educator Task Force was assembled to advance and strengthen the work of the United Nations in its efforts to transform our world and meet the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Through research, advocacy, and mobilization to meet the call to action of the Sustainable Development Goals, the Task Force will work to amplify and support the voice of the educator as a contributing member in partnership and alliance to make positive change for people and planet through educational initiatives.
Laying Down the Foundation

Let us pick up our books and our pens.
They are our most powerful weapons.
