SDG Challenge for September

Every month this term, we will be posting a Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) Challenge. This month’s challenge is about Goal #2 ‘Zero Hunger’. To join, take one or more of these challenges to make your contribution to the world:

  • Challenge #1 – Get Informed: Engage with articles, blogs, videos and campaigns to learn about the efforts being made around the world to achieve ‘Zero Hunger’.
  • Challenge #2 – Be Political: Write to The Acting Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, highlighting the need for a re-think of ‘Food Harvest 2020’.
  • Challenge #3 – Educate: Discuss Zero Hunger with your friends, family or colleagues. Be sure to share any educational activities with using #SDGchallenge.
  • Challenge #4 – Grow Your Own: Growing your own food is more sustainable, has positive health benefits and contributes to ‘Zero Hunger’.
  • Challenge #5 – #NotAWaster: For one week we challenge you to prepare well and not waste a single bit of the food which you buy and prepare for the week.

In September 2015, world leaders from 193 countries came together to adopt the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs mean we as individuals can take action every month to raise awareness and to help achieve a sustainable future by 2030. This initiative is supported by the Development Perspectives and has been shared by Anne Hannan, a tutor at Warrenmount Centre. 

We hope you will join us and take the challenge so we all ‘learn by doing’ and reduce waste. Hopefully, we will learn a little bit more about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) as well and why they are important for us, our families and our planet.

We can all help to make a difference and raise awareness of the SDG’s. Remember that some people on our planet go hungry every single day.
