The course will be outlined in short learning modules called learning playlists. Each playlist will include a mix of videos, blog posts, podcasts, quizzes etc to introduce each SDG and should be completed in maximum of 30 – 45 minutes Each playlist should include resources that help the young people contextualize the SDG in their own situation. They should also include an assessment quiz to check that the young people understand the SDGs.
