The UN's Sustainable Development Goals (aka SDGs or 'Global Goals') are 17 goals that came out of a worldwide consultation (including input from the global public) and that followed on from the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The latter focused more on the so-called 'developing' world but, as Penny mentions, the SDGs are aimed at every country and acknowledge that more must be done to reduce inequalities, poverty etc. in all countries. They are also used by many educators and offer a useful, accessible framework for engaging educators and pupils alike with global social, political and environmental issues.
