The Sustainable Development Goals, also known as the Global Goals, are a call from the United Nations to all countries around the world to address the great challenges that humanity faces and to ensure that all people have the same opportunities to live a better life without compromising our planet. This concept is not new, it has been followed by many cultures over the course of history with an aim of maintaining a balance between man and nature as well as economy. From the last two or three decades, we have seen that for the sake of economic growth, the health of the environment has taken a toll. As a result, there has been an impact on the environment such as decline in air quality and climate change due to greenhouse gases.
To contribute our part, we tried to inculcate sustainability in our curriculum. All these factors led to the need for sustainable development, as if left unchecked it can cause irreversible damage to the environment. When there seemed no beckoning call of future for the hapless and helpless then Greenway has endeavored to enlighten the people, pupils and society about the imperatives of sustainable development.
