Global Goal #8 Decent Work and Economic Growth!

In my class each week we focus on a different global goal. There are 17 global goals and they are to be accomplished by 2030. This week we could pick which goal to write about. I picked global goal #8 Decent Work and Economic Growth. I chose this goal because I want to know more about what it means. Leave a comment if you have visited the global goals website yet.

On the global goals website there is a cartoon giving information. Here is the link http://cdn.worldslargestlesson.globalgoals.org/2016/06/A-To-Do-List-for-the-Planet_Page_09_Image_0001.jpg! It’s a to-do list for the global goal. It says that decent work means that we can be sure that everyone can freely choose their own safe, fairly paid, fulfilling job. It means that they can be sure that businesses us natural resources properly and that nobody is left out from job opportunities! Those are just a few.

There are eight targets for this global goal. My favorite target is PROMOTE YOUTH EMPLOYMENT, EDUCATION, AND TRAINING. It means they want to reduce the number of youth not in employment, education, and training. I like this target because its the most important out of all the targets.

Global Goal #4 Quality Education!

Every week my class focuses on a different global goal. This week we are aloud to pick a topic we haven’t already discussed. I picked global goal #4 quality education. If you do not know what the global goals are they are issues all around the world that people are trying to fix by 2030.

People all around the world can’t get an education which makes it harder to find jobs to support their family. The global goals website has eight targets for this global goal. One of them is having a free primary and secondary education. I think that this target is important to me because some people might not have the money to pay to go to school or they may not be able to pay for school supplies.

If we achieve this goal I bet that the number of people in poverty will go down. With education they will be able to get jobs and get money to buy this to get back up on their feet. Achieving this goal would help the world a lot!

What you can do to achieve this goal is donate used books and find foundations that support goal #4 and donate to them. You can also teach someone younger than you who needs an education.

I hope that you will help support the global goals. Here is the link to there website where you can learn more about other goals and how you can support this goal. Global goals website

Global Goal #3 Good Health and Well Being!

What are the global goals? The global goals are made up of 17 global issues that are to be fixed by 2030. Last week my class focused on global goal #6 clean water and sanitation. This week we are focused on two global goals. In my last post I wrote about global goal #2 No Hunger and in this post i’m writing about global goal #3 Good Health and Well Being.

Good health and well being is the global goal #3. Over the past years the number of deaths from children has been cut in half. The Global Goals website says that we are “spending an astonishing amount of money and resources on treating illnesses that are easy to prevent. “  I think that its important that we look closely into what this sentence is saying. We could be preventing this from happening but we aren’t and now we have to spend a lot of money to cure that illness.

The Global Goals Website has eight targets for good health and well being! One of the targets is END ALL PREVENTABLE DEATHS UNDER 5 YEARS OF AGE. This target is important to me because it would decrease the number of deaths a year. IF you want to help this global goal go to the global goals website and learn what you can do!

Global Goal #2 No Hunger

Global goals are world wide problems that are to be fixed by 2030. There are 17 global goals and each week my class focuses on a different goal. This week we are focused on two global goals. Global goal #2 No Hunger and global goal #3 Good Health and Well Being. In this post I will be working on goal #2 No Hunger.

Did you know that hunger is the world’s No. 1 leading cause of death and did you also know that 25000 people die from hunger each day!  The Global Goals Website  has eight targets for this goal. One of the most important to me is Universal Access to Safe and Nutritious Food. This is important to me because they could have food but it might not be healthy or safe to eat. Just imagine it’s only monday and you know your not gonna be able to until monday. 8 million people in the world don’t know where their next meal is going to come from. What if you were so poor that you couldn’t even buy your school lunch. In Memphis Tenn., 70% of students in the public school can’t pay for there school meal. The school is eligible for free school meals.

If you think that the global issue hunger is a big problem the Global Goals website has helped me think of ways to help!  First you can donate to a charity. The global goals website says that you can save your food instead of wasting it by freezing it or saving it for leftovers before they go bad. They also say to buy funny fruit. A lot of foods are thrown out because of the way they look. What if they are actually better you will never know unless you try it.

Go to the Global Goals Website and learn about the other global goals. Learn what you can do to help and learn a little bit more about no hunger.FOOD!

Global Goal #6 Ways YOU can Help!

The Global Goals are made up of 17 goals that are to be accomplished by 2030. This week we focused on global goal #6, Clean Water and Sanitation. Not everyone in the world get clean and fresh water like you might. If you have ever been to a pond of a lake, you wouldn’t even think about drinking it. Well kids and adults in other places get water just like that and sometimes worse. If you think this is a big problem and want to help here are some ways you could.  You can look for organizations that help support getting clean water and sanitation to everyone and donate to them or you could make your own foundation to help. You can tell other people about this and get them involved too! You can clean up a nearby river or stream, and don’t waste any of your water. Go and read my other post to learn about global goal number 6 clean water and sanitation and why it’s important and why it’s such a problem! Go to the Global Goals website and learn more about this goal and learn more about what you can do! You can also learn about the other goals and help support them.

Global Goal #6 Clean Water and Sanitation

The global goals are made up of 17 goals. They are each to be accomplished by 2030. This week we are focusing on global goal #6 Clean Water and Sanitation. Why is this important? Global goal #6 is important because 1 in 3 people live with no sanitation. This can lead to death and different diseases. Without clean and affordable water people die because they are drinking unsafe water.  The Global Goals website has eight targets. One of them is to have safe and affordable drinking water for everyone. I think that one of the targets should be that the safe and affordable drinking water should be nearby because in some places they have to walk a long way to get clean water. In some cases it’s not even clean. Picture yourself without the ability to get clean water. Right now you live where you can get up and walk 5 steps to get fresh and clean  water but now,  picture it if you had to walk 5 miles to get dirty water and that’s all you had. If that was me I would not even drink the water I would rather never drink water in the world. 

In class we watched a video on TED Talk. A man had came up with a water bottle that turns contaminated unhealthy water into fresh drinkable water.  He gave an example and all he had to do was pump one end of the bottle and the water was fresh to drink. He was inspired by hurricanes and tsunamis that hit places. He saw how people reacted to get water, he said it made him feel angry and needed to do something.

 

Be a Responsible Consumer

What it means to be a responsible consumer is that you are only taking what you need and not what you want. It’s important to be a responsible consumer is because you could buy what you don’t need and never finish it. The world will get polluted and it’s not good for us to breathe in. Ways you can be a responsible consumer is by only taking what you need and finishing it. If you don’t finish it give it to someone else. Here is a saying my teacher told me take what you want eat what you take. I think that this saying is helpful because if you take more than what you need it’s a waste.  We are polluting the Earth if we don’t take care of our waste properly.

Making the World a Better Place

I think that the world needs no poverty. I think this because if we have no poverty that would also help having no hunger and good health and well being and many more.  Having no poverty would help a lot of things. I think that the world needs a special day where anyone can come to a place and interact with their family. Everybody is on their phones and need time to interact with people. I’m not saying that there bad I just think that people are on them to much. Those are two things that I think are important and will make the world a better place. Leave a comment saying what you think would make the world a better place.

Why we need the global goals?

The global goals are problems all around the world. We need to fix them because some of the goals are threatening to the planet. For example, goal number 14 life below water. Trash is building up into the ocean and fish eat the trash and die. Also, the ocean water gets gross. Being a responsible consumer also is important because if we don’t take care if the trash property it could lead into the ocean.
