I would enjoy investigating sustainable development goal number 11 with the students of primary school, sustainable cities and communities. Particularly in 4th class where the children explore renewable and non-renewable forms of energy. The students always love exploring ways that we can make Ireland greener and the energy that is around them in their localities but it’s important to highlight that different climates, terrains and economic statuses have on what energies and transports they can best utilise. This lesson in the past has broadened students understanding of how geopolitics can impact the people of a countries’ privilege. Children can investigate the public transport and ways this could be made greener and the pros and cons of the public transport in their locality or the region in the world that they chose to research. This could be extended to the children taken action by promoting conservation of energy and taking data on types of renewable energy their community utilises.
