The session aims to provide teachers with both a rationale (short introduction) and approaches to teaching towards the realization of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals 2030 across multiple subject groups through demonstration and application. Rather than accepting theSDGs as a universal framework for development, the session will provide opportunities for SDG adaptation into realities of the region whether it be pertaining to climate change, water scarcity, conflict, the protection of marine life, social justice or gender inequality.
To provide teachers with skill-based practical ideas/approaches on how to gear teaching towards the UN’s SDGs through demonstration followed by group--To allow space for contemplation and adaptation of the SDGs into realities in the Middle East based on subject-group.

The Goals:
-To provide a rationale behind the importance of unifying our efforts as educators and learners around the world towards the realization of the SDGs through a mini-lecture (despite their limitations and imperfections, they remain our existing framework for a better future).
