SDG Workshop in Schools

Example Timeline for a half day and full day SDG implementation workshop in SCHOOLS


Target groups: Students in the age range between approximately 12 to 18+ years in secondary schools or in non-formal or informal educational settings for youths. 


Note: The half day workshop is geared towards 5 educational units (EU) and including breaks (e.g. 8am to 1pm) and the full day workshop is geared towards 7 educational units (e.g. 8am to 3pm). The workshops can also be conducted in the form of two half day workshops on separate days (which would then need a bit of additional time for reflection & review on the first day and a short revision at the beginning of day two).

We can come to your School to conduct an SDG workshop for you!

If you would like Gaia Education to come to your school and facilitate a workshop for you with an experienced, local Gaia Education SDG Trainer/Multiplier we are more than happy to make that happen. Indicative costs for a 1-day face to face SDG workshop in schools are approximately 15 to 20 Euros/Pounds (2024 prices) per student (which is applicable only for Europe/UK and excludes additional costs like travel and other variable disbursements). Costs in other regions of the world vary greatly but in any case get in touch with us if you wish to conduct an SDG workshop or multiplier training at your school or other youth related educational settings, wherever you are, by completing the contact form linked below. We are also more than happy to work with you on the development of bespoke workshops or other formats of delivering the SDG and other aspects of our extensive whole systems based sustainability and regeneration courses and curricula (more on Gaia Education), to fit your needs.

A concise description of Gaia Education's offers for schools can be found in a leaflet below for download, which you can utilise for use with your teachers, school administrators, schools principles, school board or others who you may want to get excited about conducting SDG workshops at your institution.
