The EEIC SDG Academy is an educational program to introduce children 4 to 18 to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Young Learners will receive the foundational knowledge to help them understand more complex concepts later on. At the same time, they will develop empathy, curiosity, problem-solving, creativity, and effective communication skills. Older students will engage their academic knowledge and apply innovative solutions to the SDGs in their lives and communities as they, too, familiarize themselves with the 17 SDGs. The SDG Academy lessons will be offered in schools or remotely once a week for seven weeks. The Academy instructor will provide fun and engaging lessons relevant to the student's level of understanding. Upon completion of the program, students will receive a certificate of completion.
