Session 3: Millenium Development Goals and debating a point of view
Students learn about the 7 key global concerns and how they are interconnected
MDGs in detail:
Students could use the templates below to debate which MDG the UN should prioritise.
This works well as a simulation as students quickly realise that no MDG can be tackled in isolation and all have the potential to harm other goals if not met.
