LAUNCH OF NATIONAL DRAWING/ART & ESSAY CONTEST

NATIONAL ASPnet AND UNESCO CLUBS CONTEST

 TOPIC: the Sustainable Development Goals – Playing my part

 

Introduction

How do you imagine the world you want to live in? What are your expectations and wishes for the future? What do you think is important in order to live a satisfying and happy life?

In 2015, the United Nations developed a 17-step plan to promoting the sustainable development of our planet. This schedule is meant to address the above-mentioned questions and challenges of current generations all over the world as well as give tools of answers and solutions to them.

In this context, sustainability and development refer to a concept that aims to preserve the world and its resources in a way that those resources can both meet needs of current as well as of future generations in a dignified way. In order to achieve this principal aim, the UN defined the 17 goals, which need to be reached by 2030, in order to guarantee the sustainable development of our planet. The specific goals are designed to balance social, economic and ecological aspects of our environment and make it worth living.

As part of her 60th Anniversary, the Ghana National Commission for UNESCO is organizing a contest for pupils/students of ASPnet schools and UNESCO Clubs to create awareness of the Sustainable Development Goals and for young ones to point out ways and means of supporting the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
