The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.

SDGs for Children is a program that arises from curiosity and games. Our methodology is based on challenges, where collaboration, creativity, empathy, research and values are very present. Learning is structured in missions, which are related to the context that we are living after the COVID19 pandemic and the Sustainable Development Goals, and which aim to maintain peace in the world, protect the planet, ensure that all people have better living conditions, end poverty, hunger and that all children have access to education. The activities are gamified and are complemented with immersive technology through the Xtended Learning APP

The event aims that children acquire knowledge and skills necessary to promote sustainable development, including the following topics:  human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity.

This project is developed in 14 sessions. Each of the workshops follows the methodology of the SDG Manual for teachers published by CIFAL Malaga, and therefore divides the sessions into two parts: theory and practice. The theory focuses on explaining the key concepts of the seventeen SDGs that make up the 2030 Agenda. The practice follows a role-play dynamic, i.e. students and monitors simulate being in the United Nations Assembly. In this part of the workshop, the class is divided into three groups called countries. In this role-play, each country will have a representative, chosen from among the pupils in each group, and they will have to be ambassadors giving the answers reached in teams. The programming of the workshops for CEIP San José de Calasanz is based on one of the work options set out in the Manual for teachers, using the 5Ps as the central axes of the 2030 Agenda: People, Prosperity, Peace, Planet and Partnerships.


Achieving the SDGs requires the collaboration of everyone in our society.


Fourteen one-and-a-half hour workshops will be held in the school itself, seven for each class, with trainers travelling to the school for the workshops. The last workshop, the closing workshop and presentation of diplomas, will be held jointly, bringing together both classes.


To carry out this methodology, the SDG cubes will be used, which will be delivered to the centre and will remain permanently for subsequent workshops.


The content is based entirely on the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda, adapted to what the group of schoolchildren can do to carry out initiatives that support the implementation of the Goals.

The event is addressed to primary and secondary school students
