6. Value Creation through the SDGs

The United Nation’s Global 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were designed as neutral and non-political, so a perfect foci for all ages, disciples, contexts. The SDGs recognise that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests. They have the power to align global communities in shared endeavours, but do require a new management and leadership mindset, and an entrepreneurial approach.

Perfectly aligned to addressing the SDGs, the overall objectives of education and training underpinned by EntreComp are inter-related and intertwined with economic development, improved living and planetary conditions, and ethical and responsible decision-making. In an education context the SDGs provide a systems approach lens that can help students develop a well-rounded understanding of how global challenges need to be addressed. The SDGs are the ideal canvass to inspire creativity, problem-solving, and application– and encourage teaching practices that facilitate students to be more creative and ambitious in the ways they look at the world and approach problems from many contexts. – all key to survival in a VUCA world.
