I’d like to focus on Sustainable Development Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation. It’s essential for students to recognize the privilege they have in having access to running water, unlike children in certain parts of the world. I believe some children may be genuinely surprised by this disparity.
Through SPHE and SESE lessons, students could gain a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by children in different regions regarding access to clean water and sanitation facilities. We could explore the impact this has on health, education, and overall well-being. By fostering empathy and compassion, students could be inspired to take action at a local level, e.g. by reducing their own water usage at home and in school.
