Join us for an interactive workshop to explore ways to incorporate global real-world issues and youth changemaking into any grade level or content area!  Educators will discover practical strategies to integrate the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into classroom settings and engage students in learning for informed action.  Community-based educators are also welcome to attend.

This workshop will be facilitated by Ilan Enverga, a K-12 educator & Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) advocate from the International School for Better Beginnings in Lucena City, Philippines.  His bio is below.

This program is being offered in conjunction with our Global Perspectives in Civics initiative, a partnership with the Institute for Global Studies at the University of Minnesota, and supported by a U.S. Department of Education Title VI National Resource Center grant.


Ilan Enverga  is a young K-12 educator & SDG advocate from the Philippines. He works full-time as a teacher and teacher trainer in Lucena City where he pioneered a youth-led education innovation that champions global citizenship, sustainability and youth empowerment. As part of the UNESCO SDG4 Youth & Student Network, Ilan leads initiatives that uphold the priorities and solutions of young people globally, when it comes to transforming education systems. With this Network, he was elected by his international cohort of young leaders as both the Youth Representative for Asia-Pacific and the Youth Representative on the Education2030 High-Level Steering Committee, the apex body for global education cooperation, where he represents the 1.2 billion population of youth in governmental and multi-stakeholder education coordination within the 2030 Agenda.
