The UN Global Goals are world-changing objectives that will require cooperation among governments, international organizations and world leaders (http://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/).
What can the average or students person do? We believe that we can have an impact starting from education. Our project TransMission will lead students to work together in teams by exchanging ideas and suggestions on different challenges they will have to face up to 2030.
We hope they will also take actions and understand how demanding their mission is to “Transform” the world. We believe that the participation of the students in sharing and giving their opinion on current global challenges can help fight the threats to stability we are currently witnessing and be prepared to stand for a better future.
Their collaborative e-magazine and radio channel TransMission will enable them to share their ideas and opinions.
