SDG's in Action App

Secondary

Description

This mobile app serves as a ‘go to place’ for information, updates and progress reports regarding the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.  Students can set preferences to receive the latest news on only those goals that are of particular interest to them.  For students and teachers looking for easy and immediate access to descriptions and targets for all of the goals and to find out what’s being done locally and globally to achieve them, this app should be of particular interest. The platform also provides an effective mechanism for promoting and garnering support for the students' own SDG action initiatives.

General Assessment

Recommendation of how and where to use it

The app will prove to be a valuable source of up to date information concerning on-going efforts in sustainable development. It can also serve as a valuable tool in supporting student-led action plans that involve any of the 17 goals.
