Have you been wondering how you could engage with the UN Sustainable Development Goals in your classes, research or your collaborations?
This one day SDG Training of Multipliers workshop led by Gaia Education will build capacity of participants to use interactive methods and games to engage with students, stakeholders and communities in vitally important conversations about the implementation of the 17 SDGs.
The 1-day training will showcase the Gaia Education SDG flashcards based on the 4-D Whole Systems Design Framework that considers four key pillars of sustainability: Social; Economic; Ecological; Worldview. The SDG cards will be used to inspire and structure conversations, and participants will learn how to use them to inspire collaborative projects.
This holistic approach invites inquiry into each of the SDGs and the inter-connection between them as well as inspiring pathways towards relevant application and the behaviour change required for lasting change.
The training will include envisioning and designing implementable projects with other participants by prioritising & addressing multiple SDGs in synergistic ways.
