The goals are interlinked and they are a call for us to take action to help solve the most serious challenges we face today. Go to the link to know more:

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) empowers the learners with knowledge, skills, attitudes and values to address the challenges the world is facing today, be it climate change, loss of biodiversity, gender discrimination or poverty. Education alone cannot achieve a sustainable future, however, education is that first step that leads to the goal of sustainability. ARC is committed to promoting the integration of the principles of sustainable development in all aspects of education and learning. Global Sustainability Awards is one such step towards recognising and rewarding students, teachers and educational institutes which are integrating the values of ESD in their classrooms.
ARC offers teaching–learning solutions towards making education meaningful and transformative. Global Sustainability Awards strengthen our mission of making every child on this planet a global responsible citizen. Taking forward the values upheld by UNESCO, this initiative seeks to make ESD an integral part of the education system. ARC‘s other significant efforts towards integrating ESD in school curriculum include SDG Student Handbooks for Grades 1–8, Teacher Handbooks and Workshops, SDG Labs, and Digital Solutions for students and teachers. The Awards will validate efforts by institutions in making the world a better place.
