a #TeachSDGs project

Looking at 2020 is a project connected to the Teach SDGs movement and will run from August 2018 to January 2020

About the Project

As part of the #TeachSDGs movement, this project seeks to capture and celebrate incredible teaching and learning solutions to a more sustainable way of life for people across the globe.

The looking@2020 project spans the 17-month period leading up to January 1, 2020. On that date, our world will mark 10 years until the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals reach their end.

Each month this site will feature projects, lessons, events, and initiatives that support one of the 17 SDGs.

Because this is a collaborative project, we want to showcase your solutions and share them across the globe. Submit your content here!

To help reach our goal of actively supporting and enhancing the work of the United Nations' efforts within K-12 classrooms, our TeachSDGs organization contributes to the 2030 Agenda in the following ways:

  • We connect with global educators dedicated to responding to a call to action within education to meet the Sustainable Development Goals.
  • We point to open and accessible resources, lessons plans, and global projects directly aligned to the Sustainable Development Goals.
  • ​We advance the work of the UN in relation to education through advocacy and outreach to inform K-12 and higher education stakeholders, defined as educators, students, parents, and community members.
