Perspectives - Global Sustainable Activity for Kids

 

 

 

SOS Malta implemented a young people's 'Global Activity Workshop' which took the form of a fun and interactive extracurricular activity through which young people were taught about the Agenda 2030 goals and tangible related development issues. The idea behind the workshop was to provide an interactive, fun and hands on learning experience for young people to tackle issues such as 1) migration, 2) climate change 3) food security and 4) inequality and gender, as targeted by the SDGs and for them to understand how these fit within the UN Agenda 2030 framework. 

 

This non-formal learning approach workshop targeted young people aged 8-13 to take part in activities such as drama, play, dance and crafts. These exercises provoked them to reflect upon the differences between their own lives and those of children living in different situations and for them to discuss how their actions could contribute to changing the world for the better.

 

The workshop took the following format;
