Following on from the eight MDG's set in 2000, tomorrow see's the launch of the next set of goals - 17 in total, to be achieved by 2030. There are some familiar faces in there as well as completely new ones. I'm using the following resources with students to cover this in Geography lessons this week and next.
A brilliant starter video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=154&v=DdLqiTvFwJk
(funny and though provoking - I particularly love the Usain Bolt bit)
A great interactive site - http://www.globalgoals.org/
- Click on each of the goals to examine the goal and targets further as well as to download posters and quotes. My students are basing their displays on this where they have adopted a goal and are producing jointly a standardised display with their photographs and why they support the goal, as well as covering the work that has been done since 2000 and the targets for 2030. The worksheet for this can be found right at the bottom of this page - http://www.geographypods.com/disparities--change-5hrs.html
A series of lessons and ideas here (I've not used these so can't vouch for their success rates) - https://clients.squareeye.net/uploads/global/resources/global-goals-sec-activity-kit.pdf
