The Global Challenge asks students all across the Nord Anglia family to learn about the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations, then to get involved to make the world a better place by taking on the challenge in creative and engaging ways. We’re ambitious about what we can achieve together!
Check out this introduction to the goals from Shannon O’Shea at UNICEF:
This year’s Global Challenge focuses on Goals 11 and 12, which are all about creating sustainable cities/communities and responsible consumption/production.
Our future cities should offer opportunities for all, with access to basic services, energy, housing, transportation and more. We want our future cities to be places where everyone can have a home at no cost to our environment. If you could be the architect who makes this a reality, what would you do?
Sustainable growth and development means minimising the use of natural resources and toxic materials. The detrimental increase in consumption worldwide has led to an unsustainable pace of production. How would you reduce waste and pollution in our increasingly industrialised world?
