Talking Sustainable Development at St. Edmunds College, Canberra

The students at St. Edmunds were ready and waiting to greet the UNIC Director and his colleague when they arrived to talk to the 6th Grade about the United Nations and the SDGs.

The lively session demonstrated the students’ knowledge of global affairs and touched on issues such as how to achieve gender parity, why certain MDGs were not as prominent in the SDGs and what would the UN do when all the SDGs were met.

The students were asked to think about how they could contribute to achieving the SDGs and were left with a number of ideas they could take up.
