Take 1 Week 2023
November 20th - 24th
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, through every subject, in every classroom, 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 hashtags #take1week23 and #take1programme on Twitter
