Sustainable Development Goals: A Peep through Classroom

Seema Dhawan


Education can contribute maximum in the attainment of sustainable development goals due to which the role and responsibility of teachers become even more important. For achieving sustainable goals it is important that teachers should make such strategies by which quality education can be given. A teacher can contribute only when he himself is familiar with the goals of sustainable development. He cannot achieve success in his task until and unless he himself knows sustainability, its aims and objectives. And just knowing sustainability is not sufficient, he should be aware of it. Directly or indirectly a student is influenced by the personality of teacher. A teacher’s behavior in classroom, his teaching methods, the way he connects individual and society and the activities he performs for a sustainable society, all these affect a child largely. What type of a behavior is performed by the teacher and students in a classroom?  Is this behavior appropriate for achieving SDGs or not? Are the activities done by teacher and the responses given by students helpful in achieving SDGs? Such activities of classrooms were observed by the researcher. The study was conducted on the pupil teachers of Birla Campus, Hemvati Nandan Bahuguna Central University. For this purpose a questionnaire was prepared and few questions were asked related to sustainable development goals. Work was completed on the basis of responses given by students and teachers.

Keywords: sustainable development, SDGs, Hemvati Nandan Bahuguna University
