Children’s Sustainable Development Goals

The following ten Children’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) were developed by participating secondary school students from the Seychelles, Malta, Nigeria, Canada and the UK at the International Schools Debate held at The Living Rainforest, Berkshire, UK on 17 May 2012. The goals, which appear in descending order in terms of number of votes received, are offered as a preliminary input from schoolchildren around the world into future discussions on Sustainable Development Goals held at Rio+20 and beyond.

  1. Make environmental education fun and appealing
  2. No-go areas to protect biodiversity
  3. Emissions filters in all factories
  4. Listen to communities
  5. Make sure Rio+20 keep their promises
  6. Plant more trees to replace those cut down
  7. Greener energy for everyone, with incentives provided by government
  8. Eco taxes
  9. Better living and working conditions
  10. Long-term environmental policies, not short-term political gain
