SEKISUI SDGs Academy is a place where students aged approximately 10-15 years old can learn more about environmental sustainability and familiarize themselves with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out by the UN. This website is an opportunity for young people to independently build a sense of stewardship and responsibility for our world. It also gives them the tools to think about what they can do and how their actions can positively impact the environment.
The SDGs were adopted at UN Summit on September, 2015. The SDGs are international goals with the deadline of 2030 in order to realize a sustainable world. The SDGs comprise of 17 goals and 169 targets that are in connection with society, economy and global environment. They also pledge not to leave any single person out on the planet. Currently, each government, company, and organization is actively working on these issues in their respective area.
This website was designed to give young people the opportunity to think about a sustainable society and consider the power they have to contribute toward this. This site introduces 17 goals and businesses efforts to achieve them in a relatable way.
