Manual prepared to address the Sustainable Development Goals in the work with young people.

Aims of the tool

Get It Global aims to raise awareness on the grassroots level about global challenges and to contribute to the development of future global citizens. What we intend to do with this publication is offering a set of activities that can be implemented in trainings or activities with young people in schools or youth centers in order to raise awareness on the SDGs and the global problems that the world is facing, develop empathy and solidarity, help to understand the interconnections between global and local dimension, develop the feeling of responsibility towards the global challenges and motivate young people to take action.

Description of the tool

At the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit on 25 September 2015, world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and tackle climate change by 2030. The new SDGs, and the broader sustainability agenda, go much further than the Millenium Development Goals, addressing the root causes of poverty and the universal need for development that works for all the people. The manual you are holding right now has been developed to raise awareness and help youth workers from all around the world to work with the topic of SDGs.
One of the characteristics of the global problems is their interconnectedness and the need of global mobilization to tackle them. An example, in very simplified words: poverty can cause illiteracy problem, and that leads to the population growth due to the lack of family planning, and the demographic pressure increases the levels of poverty. Or we could also say that climate change is causing declining rainfall and this influence the food security, that is influencing the famine, and causing that the states fail. Those kinds of examples you can multiply in almost an endless way. In order to fight these global challenges, a complex approach addressing all the problems needs to be undertaken, and for this we need the collaboration of the whole global community.
