In July 2018, SEKISUI CHEMICAL CO., LTD. partnered with Tokyo Shoseki Co., Ltd. to launch EduTown SDGs, an educational tool for young people (aged approximately 10-15). The aim of EduTown SDGs is to help the next generation to learn about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and think about how their actions can both contribute to and impact our environment. At first, the site was launched in Japanese but in order to provide the same opportunity to develop environmental consciousness to more children around the world, we created this global version in English.
This site offers materials in the form of cards detailing the SDGs as they relate to the manufacturing/production industry. To empower the young people who will lead the next generation to think independently about the links between SDGs and the everyday products we use, this site offers content and videos about manufacturing processes.
We intend to update and add content to this website in future and appreciate any feedback or suggestions. In the meantime, please use this site whether in lesson plans, at home or as an independent learning tool in the classroom.
