Our mission is to equip educators to teach Canada's youth about the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals. Our goal is to advance the work of the UN through education of the Global Goals in classrooms, inspiring our future leaders to take action in their communities.
Now more than ever it is important for our youth to be educated by credible sources. Education is the key to changing the mindset of the next generation from:
"What can the planet do for me?"
"What can I do for my planet?"
This program is an “add on” of activities for the SucSeed Educator Garden Kits. We find that the garden can relate to every goal, and adds a tangible element that children really respond to.
The “Sustainable Superheroes” are a fun and easy way to introduce the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals to children ages 0-14. We all know the world is not the same as it was 50 years ago. In order to set the next generation up for success we must provide them with the knowledge and tools they will need to understand the world around them.
Each of the superheroes has a lesson booklet that touches on:
The activities feature inclusive characters, language, and COVID friendly activities. We want children to be educated and empowered to be a sustainable superhero at home, at school, and everywhere in between!
The lessons and experience were very suited and fit in very well to many classes in the grade 6 curriculum. Students were very engaged due to the relevance the experience had for them. I am very pleased how the lessons focus on building global competencies which will be essential knowledge and skills for our future citizens and leaders

The students had a wonderful job watching our plants grow! There was nothing that I could think of that was negative. The whole experience each day coming into the class and seeing the plant's growth gave my students a sense of joy and belonging.”

Excellent. Discussion and innovative ideas were being discussed in the classroom for future development in areas that will be needed as well as creation of new jobs. Understanding that hunger does not need to happen in our world with the right education and resources”
