Exploring sustainable development through poetry 

Through poetry, children and youths learn about the global goals, not just reading and conversing, but engaging themselves to create poetry that is aimed to change the world in a sustainable way. Every school year starts with a challenge and during the year we explore the global goals and read, create and share poetry. On March 21st, we celebrate World Poetry Day together by sharing poetry for a sustainable future in a digital event. Hashtag: #sustainablepoetry #poetryday

Leaving no one behind is the most important commitment in Agenda 2030. The commitment focus on the the most vulnerable people.
