Connecting the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals to the STEAM Curriculum (Grades 2-13) – Fostering Purpose-Based Learning for the Whole Student

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) are more broadly encompassed by the five pillars of People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership. The 5 Ps are a framework through which the SDGs can be better understood, showing the interconnected nature of each SDG and sustainability as a whole. By unpacking the SDGs through this framework, a better understanding of the goals and how they can achieved can be gained, creating true actionable items for progress on the SDGs. With this aim in mind, a focus is being put on including the SDGs in various curricula to teach future generations about the importance of sustainable development and the work that must be done to achieve these goals.

This speaker series will highlight the work that is being done to include the SDGs in curricula by those in the field of education. “Unboxing the SDGs,” with the aim of looking in detail at what is inside each SDG box, will bring together experts to share their best practices, lessons learned, challenges faced and opportunities that exist to further infuse the SDGs in higher education classrooms in different disciplines.

Speaker: Minna Allarakhia – president and Chair of the board, BioEndeavor
