The Teach on Earth application blows out its first birthday candle

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:

  • People
  • Planet
  • Prosperity
  • Peace
  • Partership

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:

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.

The Teach on Earth application is available for free download on the App Store and Google Play.
