The UNSDG Challenge

Wednesday 11/8/2017 – OPENING – 10 minutes

We’ll begin the day by assigning you and your partner an SDG to focus on, and by reviewing a few additional resources that will help you complete your challenge.

For learning about your SDG:

  • Go HERE and click on your SDG.
  • On that page, you will see an overview of the goal, lots of information, facts and figures, and a link to the “Why It Matters” PDF.
  • All of that can/should be used to answer these GQs. The PDF for sure has everything you need to meet the minimum requirements.


a visual image such as a chart or diagram used to represent information or data. Below are some examples (click to enlarge), but there are plenty more examples available if you do a Google search of ‘Infographics’.

Additional Resources:

None of these are required, but all of them have really valuable information for those of you who are looking to extend your learning, and your infographic.

LESSON – 50 minutes

Work time. Connect with your partner, create a plan, and get to work.


No specific homework, HOWEVER….this is an important nano-challenge, one that will not only give you a good foundational understanding of the UNSDGs, but one that will give you a chance to show yourself that you can successfully complete a challenge. If your class time is not as productive as you need it to be, you’ll definitely want to work on this at home.
