Getting Critical about the post-2015 Global Goals

Examine different views and think critically about what should follow the MDGs.
learn about millennium development goals, teach mdgs, oxfam, oxfam education, teach about poverty, teach about inequality, active global citizens,

Since their creation in September 2000, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) have encouraged the countries committed to them to work towards meeting the needs of the world's poorest people. The target date for the MDGs is 2015 so beyond that, a new set of goals will be needed. 


Originally created to assist with the Shape the Future Competition, this activity introduces learners to the views of a range of development experts and organisations interested in the post-2015 framework.


It asks them to consider what they are saying, look at the similarities and differences, and decide for themselves which things they agree or disagree with.

We suggest you use this resource after teaching about the MDGs using Change the World in Eight Steps.
