The Sustainable Development Goals

We are in the decade of action to work towards achieving the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as outlined by the United Nations.

Diverse Educators is committed to doing the work across our network by connecting our training offer, our events programmes and our desired outcomes (as well as our vision, mission, values and strategic vision) with the global goals to transform our world, together.

We believe in a shared vision and a collective responsibility in working towards the SDGs, together.

We believe that through meaningful collaborative partnerships across our network and wider education community, we can have a greater impact in addressing societal issues, together.

We believe that our schools are shaping global citizens and that we are all responsible for the world that we co-create, together.

Whilst we believe there is a part for all of us as educators and schools to play in all 17 SDGs, we align our work specifically to 7 of the SDGs as outlined below through our commitments:
