Continuing the partnership between Inova-Ria and AEVA / EPA - Aveiro Professional School, we challenged today, the students of Education, to analyze informally the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and how technology and innovation can play an important role in achieving these goals so important in the global context and for all humanity.
The partnership aims to develop thematic WorkLabs with the 1st year juniors of the Professional Courses and in the period of AE2EP - Essential Learning in the development of Curricular Enrichment.
The WorkLabs are online and this year's theme is "How is technology helping to achieve one of the 17 SDGs created by the UN?". The initiative will reach hundreds of students in ten classes at the school. It runs until June, the end of the current school year.
The 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), framed within the UN 2030 Agenda, aim to eradicate poverty; eradicate hunger; ensure access to quality health care; achieve gender equality; ensure the availability and sustainable management of safe drinking water and sanitation for all; ensure access to renewable and affordable energy; promote decent work and economic growth; build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization, and foster innovation; reduce inequalities within and among countries; make cities and communities safer, more inclusive and sustainable; ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns; take action to combat climate change; protect marine life; protect terrestrial life; promote peace, justice and effective institutions; strengthen the means of implementation communication and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.
Taking into account 17 SDGs, students in each class choose one of the goals and carry out a work that allows them to understand how we can link technology to the achievement of these goals.
The students present at this morning's Worklab will present their work next Friday, January 6th.
