Welcome to Sustainable Foundations: A Guide for Teaching the Sustainable Development Goals

This guide is designed for educators or anyone who would like to teach young people about the  United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The Sustainable Development Goals — also known as the SDGs or the Global Goals — cover a wide range of sustainability issues; highlighting local, national and international priority areas to end poverty and hunger, improve health and education, make cities more sustainable and combat climate change.

This guide will provide you with information, educational resources and other supports to help you in your efforts to educate and engage young people so that they support sustainable development and are inspired to turn that support into action. This guide will also explore how to incorporate the different topics covered by each goal into lessons across multiple subjects. 
You don’t need any prior knowledge or experience of the United Nations, international development, or the Sustainable Development Goals to use this guide. It can be referred to in whole or as individual parts to suit your curriculum.

If you would like to order a print copy of the Sustainable Foundations guide, please contact us at info@mcic.ca or 204 987-6420.

Bienvenue à Fondations durables: Un Guide d’enseignement des objectifs de développement durable

Ce guide est conçu pour les éducateurs ou toute personne qui aimerait enseigner aux jeunes les objectifs de développement durable des Nations Unies.

Ce guide vous donne des informations claires, des ressources pédagogiques et d’autres soutiens pour appuyer vos efforts d’éducation et de motivation des jeunes pour qu’ils appuient les objectifs de développement durable et se sentent inspirés à transformer leur appui en action. Ce guide explore aussi comment vous pouvez incorporer à vos cours les divers sujets couverts par chaque objectif dans de multiples matières.
