Promote the empowerment of young people and gender equality in education.
Introduce the Sustainable Development Goals, explaining that these are a set of targets launched in September 2015 with the aim of promoting sustainable development worldwide. One of the Sustainable Development Goals is for everyone to have access to quality education (SDG 4). Get students to consider to whom they might write (e.g. a local or national politician) and then write a letter asking them to support this SDG. In their letter, students should try to quote some of the data from here.
Students should explain why they think this SDG is of particular importance and use examples to extend their ideas. Students should draw on persuasive writing techniques.
