Talking Sustainable Development at Dickson College

The Director of the United Nations Information Centre Canberra gave a presentation to a Year 12 Global Studies class at Dickson College on Monday, 19 March.

The forty-minute presentation explained the 17 global Sustainable Development Goals and how each goal is interrelated though it each has its own targets to achieve.

Subsequent to the presentation, there was a wide range of questions from the engaged students touching on UN issues such as the status of Palestine, the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, Migration and what the Australian Government is doing for the Sustainable Development Goals.

At the end of the class, a group of students inspired by the presentation decided to display a SDG poster and SDG goals in the classroom and along the school hallways to spread awareness throughout the college.
