Educational materials available on the Tup Tup Tup website refer directly to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. By means of tales, games and experiments, as well as art projects, children will learn about topics such as climate change, renewable energy or sustainable cities. All materials related to SDG for Kids are divided into 3 categories: Stories, Arts and Crafts, Games and Experiments. Posts are also divided into subcategories. You need only to click the SDG icon to find materials related specifically to this SDG, for example: no hunger, clean water or good education for all. Not all SDGs have individual materials at this stage, but we will complement missing posts with time.
About SDG (Sustainable Development Goals)
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.SDGs were accepted by all UN member states and need to be implemented by 2030. The goals are interconnected; often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another. The Sustainable Development Goals have replaced the Millennium Development Goals of 2000-2015. The Millennium Goals were focused on the elimination of poverty, hunger and diseases. The new 17 Global Goals go much further, including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities.
SDG for Kids and Teachers
The development of the 17 SDGs integrates various environments to achieve common goals. The worlds of science, public administration and business have realised that no change will occur if the fulfilment of the Global Goals remains only at state level. CultureLab Foundation joined the community of educators from around the world. We encourage everyone to follow a common path. Teachers and educators have a very important role to fulfil. We have to teach the youngest children, give them skills that will enable them to make the right decisions on a local, national and global level in the future. We need to encourage even the youngest children to think critically and to take actions that will bring about positive change. Each of us would like to live in a world of global solidarity, empathy and responsibility. We would like decision-makers to transform the world in a sustainable way and develop the economy with respect for the environment and human rights. Education is crucial for the accomplishment of this goal.
CultureLab creates socially responsible communities of kindergartens, companies, and institutions supporting smart education for children. It works on the macro level by changing the system of educating young children, and on the micro level by organising workshops for children in Warsaw and other cities in Poland. The foundation is part of The World’s Largest Lesson that together with UNICEF and UNESCO educates children about balanced development in the world.
