- Introduction to your course “Global Goal and Innovation through STEM” and why you have chosen to enrol in this elective.
I chose to enrol in this course because I am interested in sustainability for the environment.
- Who are the United Nations?
They are an organization that tries to sustain peace across the globe. The UN was established on the October 24th 1945.

- Partnerships for the goals
- Why are these goals important?
These goals are important because they ensure that humans are living the best quality of life on earth. The UN once said “There is no ‘Plan B’ because we do not have a ‘Planet B.’ We have to work and galvanize our action.” This quote shows the importance of achieving these goals, which protect both our planet and humankind
- Outline any progress on the SDG’s.
Gender Equality for example hasn’t been improving and the lockdown hasn’t been helping this. Lockdowns have increased the risks of violence against women. On the other hand, the Climate crisis may have actually benefitted from coronavirus. Covid 19 may result in a 6% drop in greenhouse gas emissions for 2020
- What goals do you believe have relevance to All Saints’ College and its community?
I think Quality education would relate to All Saints because it’s a school so it would have to make sure the quality of education is up to standards. I also think clean and affordable energy would relate to all saints because they might not have the most environmentally friendly energy.
