Education is the key that will allow many other Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved. When the global classroom focuses on the path of the sustainable development goals of 2030, no one is left behind. There is no denying the impact of the UN SDGs in global classrooms. Disruptions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the increasingly interconnected nature of the world’s challenges have spurred ventures and educators to understand the multitude of impacts of the value of the UN SDGs in each and every classroom and its entire school community.  

The fireside chat was hosted by:

Jocelyn Dimaala is a School Principal who is fascinated with Robot Mechanisms and AI. She is a global sustainability ambassador, Women in Tech and Industry 5.0 country ambassador, Ambassador Pro of the Global School Alliance, and Climate Action Project (CAP).

Jocelyn aims at empowering women and youths, creating possibilities, and making a difference through technology, meaningful project engagements, and collaborations.
