Among the seven ISA projects, “Sustainability” is the one which we have done in collaboration with Aylesbury High School, England.

As a part of this project, we prepared booklets, power point presentations and essays. Since we observed the works of Aylesbury High School children’s works, really we learnt a lot.

               I must say that engaging in this project was really useful and interesting as well to work with the students of Aylesbury High School. They are very creative and keen in sharing knowledge and facts. Before getting involved in it, I haven’t known about sustainability and its goals. Now, I’ve got a wide knowledge on it and I would like to share what I’ve learnt.

The sustainable  development goals are a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations the bread goals are interrelated though each has its own targets to achieve the total number of targets is 169 the sustainability development goals cover a broad range of social and economic development issues such as poverty, hunger, health, education, energy, etc.

Environmental sustainability doesn’t mean living without luxuries but rather being aware of your resource consumption and reducing unnecessary waste such as energy foods. Poverty is an ambition goal in 2000, the world committed to having the number of people living in extreme poverty by the year 2015 and we met the goal. Many countries that used to suffer from famine and hunger can now meet the nutritional needs of their most vulnerable people our health affects everything from how much we enjoy like what to work. Poverty, armed conflict and other emergencies keep many, many kids around the world out of school. Most regions have reached gender parity in primary education water scarcity affects more than 40 percent of people around the world.

Between 1990 and 2010 the number of people with access to electricity increase by 1.7 billion fuel and greenhouse gas emissions are making drastic changes in the climate. Leading to big problems on every continent job growth is not keeping pace with the growing labour force

The world is becoming ever more interconnected and prosperous. Thank to internet the rich get richer and the poor get poorer the divide has never been starker more than half the world’s population now lives in cities and that figure will go to about two. Thirds of humanity by the year 2050 some people use a lot of stuff and some people use very little in fact a big share of the world population is consuming too little to meet even their basic needs.

In conclusion, I wish to thank all for have given me such an opportunity to get to know about sustainability and its importance.
