Get Up and Goals

Get Up and Goals was a three-year project funded by the EU with the aim of raising awareness of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) amongst teachers and young people in 12 European countries. With our partners, we shared knowledge and skills to create a national campaign to promote the teaching of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through topics such as Migration, Gender Inequality, Climate Change and addressing Global Inequalities.
