SDG Heroes for Change

The Problem

Entrepreneurs on a learning programme at Skills Village in Johannesburg and other communities in Gauteng will be sharing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG ) with the youth and children in their local communities through SDG events and activities aligned to the Roots & Shoots focus on Food & Health, Human Community and Human Condition and Reduce Reuse, Recycle. Through the year mini-parades will also focus on Indigenous Community Stories, Peace, Water, Wildlife and other relevant issues.

Our Plan

The young entrepreneurs will be engaging with their local communities through the Roots & Shoots Formula Toolkit. Planned events aligned to the Sustainable Development Goals build on the SDG "Heroes for Change" comic series where the participants will earn a badge for each of the Sustainable Development Goal activities that they participate in - eg Mother Earth Day and World Environment Day (22 April and 5 June) which support Goals 12 - Responsible Consumption and Production and 13 Climate Action - both days are focussed on Act to end Plastic - Beat Plastic Pollution.
