Genesis Global School is a signatory of the ‘School Commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals’ and therefore a member of the Global Schools Program.
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 objectives – negotiated and agreed to by all 193 world governments in 2015 – to end extreme poverty, achieve decent work for all, promote justice, peace and prosperity, and protect the environment. The goals are a practical tool for governments, institutions, local communities, civil society organizations, schools, and businesses to work together towards a standard and a clear set of targets to be achieved by 2030.
Global Schools’ Program membership provides GGS the necessary tools and e-resources for teachers to educate their students on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In working with educators, the program helps transform learning environments globally and make schools the hubs of education and leadership on the SDGs, ultimately empowering students to prioritize sustainable development in their lifestyles, behaviours, education, and professional careers.
