One year on, dozens of training courses and several hundred learners later, the Teach on Earth application has succeeded in raising awareness about sustainable development issues, thanks to mobile learning.
It’s the 5th anniversary of SDGs and the Teach on Earth app is one year old!
The Teach on Earth app was launched on September 25, 2019, a symbolic date marking the anniversary of the adoption of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and Agenda 2030, which has also just celebrated its 5th anniversary. Agenda 2030 is the global action plan for peace, people, planet and prosperity by 2030. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the agenda cover the issues of sustainable development for all countries, poor, rich and middle-income.
Created in 2017, Teach on Earth aims to use the power of digital training to raise awareness of social and environmental challenges. The Teach on Earth application, a free platform open to all, offers training courses which aim to make world citizens aware of the problems facing society and the environment. The Teach on Earth vision: To know is to be able to act.
A catalog of around 40 pieces of content on Sustainable Development issues
The Teach on Earth catalog is split into five categories based on the five pillars of Sustainable Development:
The sub-categories constitute the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out by Agenda 2030.
The catalog now contains around twenty training courses on subjects which include safeguarding the environment, education, health, the climate, gender equality and around twenty quizzes to discover the Sustainable Development Goals in a fun and educational way.
Teach on Earth also is also about partnerships
Hot on the heels of the 17 SDGs, Teach on Earth has forged partnerships with NGOs and organizations involved in the mobilization surrounding Agenda 2030 to offer you educational and committed content on sustainable development goals.
These include the following courses:
- Serial litters: time to take action! in partnership with Surfrider Foundation Europe
- Water: a universal need that springs eternal? in partnership with Solidarités International
- Biodiversity, it’s us! in partnership with the Association Les Amis d’Engage
- Illegal content: click, report! in collaboration with Point de Contact
- Edumiam provided around fifty training courses for early infancy parents and professionals, free of charge for the entire lockdown period. Its course on nutrition and education about flavors for children aged 0-3 is still available free of charge.
Furthermore, to mark European Sustainable Development Week, the French Development Agency and Teach on Earth launched 17 quizzes on SDGs, that is nearly 300 questions/answers to explain all, for all ages, about sustainable development issues.
Finally, with the Global Compact France, and the course, “The United Nations’ Global Compact”, companies are invited to learn about this initiative which strives to reach the aims of Agenda 2030 and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
