Take 1 Week 2022
November 21st -25th
The Take 1 Programme promotes an Education for Sustainable Development awareness raising campaign in schools, which includes support to engage with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in a formal way through classroom experiences. Resource materials highlight opportunities for embedding ESD in teaching and learning in all subject areas. The Take 1 Programme methodology maps the SDGs to learning outcomes in Junior Cycle subjects, demonstrating how teaching and learning about sustainability can be aligned to existing subject syllabuses.

Using this approach, every student, in every classroom, through every subject can learn about the interconnected nature of Education for Sustainable Development. Take 1 Week elevates these teaching and learning opportunities, by creating a focus on 'whole school' engagement.

Each teacher involved is asked to teach 1 Lesson, about 1 SDG to 1 class group any time during Take 1 Week

Schools highlight their activities internally at school level and on various social media platforms, using the #etb_sdgs on Twitter

*A key to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 is to make the information on the 17 goals available and understandable. While issues around climate change and climate action have dominated the SDG agenda in recent years, awareness of, and achievement in, all 17 Global goals is vitally important.
