The Goalkeepers Podcast
Podcast di inglese per la scuola secondaria
Do you believe that the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda are too difficult to achieve? Do you feel helpless when it comes to global issues like climate change or world poverty? If so, this is the podcast for you. One episode, one goal. And lots of suggestions to make small changes in our everyday life and get closer to each goal. Because lots of small individual changes can make a big world change. Remember, everyone can be a goalkeeper.
Decent work and economic growth
Economic growth must be a positive force for the whole planet and create decent jobs while not harming the environment. We have to protect labour rights and once and for all put a stop to modern slavery. So, what must and mustn’t a job have for it to be a good one?
Everybody in the world is experiencing the effects of climate change through new weather patterns, rising sea levels and extreme weather events. The latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is certain that we all need to do something drastic to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions right now. What is your climate action plan?
Partnerships for the goals
In September leaders are meeting to discuss their progress with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. How can people work together to reach all the SDGs by 2030? Maybe donate or raise money, volunteer, buy products with the FairTrade label, stay informed.
Responsible production and consumption
The UN reported that the fashion industry is the second most polluting industry in the world. Despite this, fast fashion is predicted to be worth over 200 billion dollars by 2030. What are the consequences for the people and the environment we don’t do enough to protect?
Sustainable cities and communities
The world’s population is constantly increasing. To accommodate everyone, we need to build modern, sustainable cities. What are they? How can we achieve them? One of the targets is to create effective transport systems. Our great-grandparents could walk and cycle to work and school. Why couldn’t we?
Life below water / Life on land
In 2021 each person on the planet produced on average 7.6 kg of e-waste. Over 80% of it went to landfill, so toxic substances such as mercury were likely to end up in our land and water. What are the consequences for your life and future generations?
No poverty / Zero hunger
According to the UN, nearly 1 in 3 people in the world don’t have regular access to good food. Yet homes, shops and restaurants waste 931 million tonnes of good food each year, 570 million tonnes of this is just from our homes! Do you hate wasting food? Why?
What’s the 2030 Agenda?
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda represent a call for action to change our world. What do you do to try to make the world a better place? Does it work?
