Sustainable development goals (SDGs) working model

Creating a sustainable development goals (SDGs) working model with four partitions and a rotatable mechanism using cardboard can be a compelling and educational project.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 global goals adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The SDGs are designed to address a range of global challenges and promote sustainable development in economic, social, and environmental dimensions. The goals aim to improve the well-being of people, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all.

Here is a brief overview of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals:

  1. No Poverty (Goal 1): End poverty in all its forms everywhere.
  2. Zero Hunger (Goal 2): End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture.
  3. Good Health and Well-being (Goal 3): Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.
  4. Quality Education (Goal 4): Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
  5. Gender Equality (Goal 5): Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
  6. Clean Water and Sanitation (Goal 6): Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.
  7. Affordable and Clean Energy (Goal 7): Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all.
  8. Decent Work and Economic Growth (Goal 8): Promote sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all.
  9. Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure (Goal 9): Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization, and foster innovation.
  10. Reduced Inequality (Goal 10): Reduce inequality within and among countries.
  11. Sustainable Cities and Communities (Goal 11): Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable.
  12. Responsible Consumption and Production (Goal 12): Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.
  13. Climate Action (Goal 13): Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.
  14. Life Below Water (Goal 14): Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas, and marine resources for sustainable development.
  15. Life on Land (Goal 15): Protect, restore, and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.
  16. Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions (Goal 16): Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all, and build effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions at all levels.
  17. Partnerships for the Goals (Goal 17): Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development.

Here’s a step-by-step guide:

Materials Needed:

  1. Cardboard
  2. Ruler
  3. Pencil
  4. Craft knife or scissors
  5. Colored paper or markers
  6. String or yarn
  7. Small brads or paper fasteners
  8. Glue or tape
  9. Printouts or drawings representing SDGs (optional)

Steps to Create the SDGs Working Model:

Step 1: Prepare the Base:

  • Cut a large piece of cardboard to serve as the base for your model. This will be the foundation for the rotating mechanism.

Step 2: Create Four Partitions:

  • Cut the cardboard into four equal partitions. Use a ruler to ensure equal sizing.

Step 3: Create Rotating Mechanism:

  • Connect the four partitions in the center using small brads or paper fasteners. This forms a square with four movable parts that can rotate.

Step 4: Draw or Attach SDGs:

  • Draw or print out representations of the four Sustainable Development Goals you’d like to showcase (e.g., No Poverty, Clean Water, Affordable and Clean Energy, Quality Education).
  • Attach or draw each SDG on a separate partition.

Step 5: Attach Strings for Rotation:

  • Attach a piece of string or yarn to each partition. Ensure the strings are of equal length and connect them at the center. This allows for easy rotation of the SDGs.

Step 6: Display and Demonstrate:

  • Set up your SDGs working model at the exhibition table.
  • Rotate the strings to display each SDG and explain its importance, objectives, and the role it plays in sustainable development.

This SDGs working model provides an interactive and informative display that allows viewers to understand and appreciate the goals of sustainable development.

It’s a creative way to raise awareness about global challenges and the importance of working towards a more sustainable future.
