UN SDG’s – Goal #8 – Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all
Welcome students, to our seventh session exploring the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals! Our focus today will be on goal number seven, Affordable & Clean Energy. This goal strives to ensure access to affordable energy for all, reduce global energy consumption through efficient and sustainable practices, and promote innovative technology. We’ll explore what it looks like when people have access to affordable and clean energy as well as ways that we can work together towards these goals both locally or in our global communities. We’ll also learn about the negative impacts of using non-renewable sources of energy and how we can switch over to more sustainable ones.
