A Deep Dive Into the Smithsonian Science for Global Goals Learning Framework

The Smithsonian Science for Global Goals Project provides youth around the world, ages 8–17, with the knowledge and skills to understand the world’s most pressing issues and to become agents for change in their own communities. Through a series of freely available community research guides, young people use their communities as their laboratory to investigate the science that underlies the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

With an emphasis on helping young people define and implement their own sustainable actions to help solve the greatest challenges of our time, this webinar will:

Learning Outcomes:

  • Introduce participants to the Smithsonian Science for Global Goals Project
  • Provide a deep dive into the underlying learning framework embedded in the guides
  • Support educators in utilizing this content in their own contexts
