Sustainable Development Goals Curriculum Suite

PAAC developed free lesson plans on various global issues and their relevance to Hawai'i. Each lesson relates to one or more of the 17 U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and includes a curated list of articles or videos, a short kahoot quiz to test comprehension, discussion questions, ideas for action, and more.  These were designed to be easily adaptable for PAAC club meetings or classroom situations.
