Do you want to empower your students to see themselves as changemakers who can find solutions to
problems in their lives and communities? Join us for an interactive webinar and discover how to use the
United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals to spark student-led action in your class. Through a
series of collaborative and reflective activities, you will discover how students can engage in design
thinking through the lens of empathy, determine what an action project might look like in your school
context, and explore classroom-ready resources to help you get started.

  2. discuss how students can engage in design thinking through the lens of empathy;
