Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Advancing the SDGs
The group project was aimed at localizing and advancing the sustainable development goals amongst high school students. The millennium fellows visited a community senior high school in Lagos, Nigeria and enlightened the students about the SDGs and global citizenship education. After the lectures, the students were assigned a class activity and were asked to use the issue tree method of GCED to solve societal problems around them.
