Education of SDG Goals in the School System

Let’s face it, the dissemination of knowledge regarding SDGs is not yet in educational programs nationally (here in Vietnam) or internationally. Right now, we are far from ensuring “that people everywhere have the relevant information and awareness for sustainable development and lifestyles in harmony with nature.”

Even though the UN has created the framework to include this ambitious goal, aptly named “Education for Sustainable Development Goals: Learning Objectives,” into its agenda(1), we are still not seeing SDGs promoted to those in need. Additionally, Microsoft has developed a tool, which provides courses & materials for online users about SDGs(2). This course can be translated by Bing into many languages and ought to help in enriching international understanding. However, it has not yet been streamlined to the national level.

By sharing the above two useful materials, we can bring the world closer to achieving its SDG goals. Together, we can be one step closer to successfully meeting the aims of the 2030 Agenda.
