I've been fortunate enough to work with fabulous colleagues at Oxfam to help write this excellent new guide which is downloadable here.
This guide supports teachers and educators working with young people to deepen their understanding of education about and for the SDGs and to see how global citizenship education (GCE) approaches and methodologies can underpin and enhance good practice.
The guide also explores the benefits and challenges of using the SDG framework with learners in schools. Practical advice, activity ideas, case studies and useful links and resources are provided to inspire and support educators with a rich breadth of ways in which learners can engage with the SDGs. The guide also serves as a useful stimulus for professional development, linking to educational priorities such as values, curriculum development and working with the local community.
Oxfam believes that engaging with local and global issues such as those encompassed by the SDGs is not just essential for creating a fairer and more sustainable world, but that it is beneficial and motivational for young people, their teachers and their communities. Their extensive experience of working with teachers on global citizenship education over the years strongly informs our motivation for producing this guide. The support of external partner organisations in the GCE sector was also instrumental in making this guide happen!
