SDGs Academy

Arigatou International’s SDGs Academy for Children (SDGs Academy) is a safe space (both physical and virtual) and programme for children’s participation, learning and action on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the Agenda 2030 in general. It seeks to bring children’s participation at the forefront of the SDGs, while empowering children and the community around them, towards the realisation of sustainable development.

How the SDGs Academy Works

The SDGs Academy for Children (SDGs Academy) covers learning and action on the 5 P’s of the SDGs – People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnerships. These are modelled into 5 hubs of the academy, namely; Knowledge Hub, Capacity Hub, Dialogue Hub, Innovations and Solutions Hub, and, the Faith and Fun Hub. It is through these hubs that children learn, reflect and come up with ideas and solutions geared towards contributing to the achievement of the SDGs.

The virtual space of the SDGs Academy is available here. We also have 2 physical spaces of the SDGs Academy – The Pioneer, in Limuru, Kenya, and the Model Classroom, in Colombo, Sri Lanka
