FEE and Sustainable development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide us with a vision of our common future. They set before us an agenda to engage with, so we can build a better future for everyone.
FEE by definition engages with SDG 4 for Quality Education and especially with the target 4.7. All five FEE programmes are characterised by the same component: providing their participants with opportunities to acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary to promote sustainable development and global citizenship, and lead sustainable lifestyles.
In 2018, our five programmes engaged with the SDGS in different ways. For instance, the YRE Competition invited International Collaboration entries on Sustainable Cities and Communities (Goal 11), Responsible Consumption and Production (Goal 12) and Climate Action (Goal 13). Green Key’s best practice competition focused on Goal 12 to ensure ‘sustainable consumption and production patterns’, while Eco-Schools published ‘Positive Actions for the Sustainable Development Goals’, highlighting through specific school projects the value of global perspectives in dealing with sustainability.
