UN SDG’s – Goal #9- Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
Welcome students, to our ninth session exploring the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals!
Our focus today will be on goal number nine, Industry Innovation & Infrastructure. This goal seeks to build resilient infrastructure and foster innovation by providing access to information systems such as the internet while encouraging countries to increase investments into research and development activities in order to improve productivity across multiple sectors of society.
We’ll look into why this kind of investment is important for a prosperous future for everyone around the world as well as how individuals everywhere can contribute towards these objectives in meaningful ways.
Innovation is an opportunity to advance the infrastructure, capabilities and skills in a community.
- Support local infrastructure projects, such as road and bridge repairs or public transportation improvements.
- Organize a workshop or event to raise awareness about the importance of innovation and technology in your community.
- Start a community innovation lab or maker space where people can collaborate on projects and learn new skills.
