Objective of the project

We contributed to increase awareness, critical understanding and active participation on the topics of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development among school-aged children and citizens.

Abstract of the project

The project promoted the active involvement of students, citizens, associations and institutions through: local participatory paths to make 6 cities (Turin, Milan, Rome, Naples, Syracuse, Catania) more inclusive, safe, long-lasting and sustainable; online and offline educational activities using social networks, interactive games, challenges between different classes, and exchanges with classes from India and Kenya and national and local communication campaigns to promote the project and the Sustainable Development Goals.

Context analysis

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development came officially into force in January 2016. The Agenda includes 17 so-called Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) ranging from ending all forms of poverty to tackling climate change. The achievement of these ambitious goals requires the engagement of a variety of stakeholders including governments, civil society, the private sector etc. Italy is among the world countries which has adopted the Agenda. However, the general public is not very much aware of the existence of this Agenda and of the relevance of the above-mentioned goals for our everyday life. This means that individuals and communities are not aware about their role and the resources they can use to bring about change and ask those who are responsible to do so.
