"The Good Life Goals (GLG) translate the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) into individual actions. In short, they tell you how you can act more sustainable every day. This is an important step to make sustainability a real peoples movement. Goal 4 explains how you can "LEARN AND TEACH".
Goal 4 "LEARN AND TEACH" asks for the following actions:
1) Keep learning throughout life
2) Teach kids kindness
3) Help girls and boys stay in school
4) Support teachers and keep schools open
5) Defend everyone’s right to an education
It is linked to SDG 4 "Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all."
On GLG 4.1: You never stop learning! Be open and welcome all opportunities to expand your skills and knowledge, to grow and become your better self. It is never to late to start a new hobby, to get to know a new culture, to learn a new language or just to expand your existing knowledge.
On GLG 4.2: Teaching children kindness means spreading love and giving the potential for a peaceful world. How? Teach them to share their food, their toys. Teach them to welcome everyone regardless of who they are. Teach them to change perspectives and to listen. Teach them to find compromises.
On GLG 4.3: Support your own children, your siblings, your more distant relatives, your friends, your neighbors' kids or the kids of strangers to learn, to grow, to practice. Offer your help, your time and your knowledge. Acknowledge and reward their accomplishments. Cheer them up when they fail and show them a way forward to success. Help boys and girls equally.
On GLG 4.4: Support teachers by teaching your children to respect them. Support teachers by teaching your children curiosity and eagerness to learn more. Support teachers by advocacy for teachers' rights and working conditions.
On GLG 4.5: In order to enable and ensure the right for education, you should speak out and advocate for a propper financing of education and cast your vote for people who do the same.
Since October 14th, we are using Sunday mornings to discuss one GLG. Follow us to read more next Sunday.
