After a successful S.T.E.A.M School 2018 and the launch of D.I.V.E 2019, we bring to you yet another program to provide a global learning experience, this time in Paris, France. The SDG School 2019 Edition is a one month long project based program which Maker’s Asylum will be co-organising with Centre for Research and Interdisciplinarity, Paris

The program is designed to give you access to a platform where you can voice an opinion, take an action and create an impact alongside young leaders from across the globe.

SDG School framework

The framework for SDG School 2019 Edition is based on the Sustainable Development Goals outlined by the United Nations to be reached by 2030. These goals are a blueprint to achieve a better and a sustainable future for all cultures around the globe. These goals address challenges faced by economies both in the developed and the developing nations in the areas of education, healthcare, equalitiy, energy, production, consumption, climate change and strategic partnerships
