To celebrate WORLD EARTH DAY (22 April 2020) we are paying tribute to Greta Thunberg, who’s voice, heart and courage are exemplary to us all.
These rhymes are dedicated to her, and to all the children and adults who are committed to saving our planet and making the world a better place.
A SMART Way TO START DOING GOOD (SDG)
You’ve heard Greta’s message on climate, I’m sure:
our planet has problems we cannot ignore.
Can you save the planet if you’re just a kid?
I’d say: “Yes, indeed! It’s high time we all did!”
At school we learn all about our ABCs
so why don’t we also learn our SDGs?
The same way we need every letter to spell,
we need SDGs for the world to do well.
Twenty-six letters to write every line:
they’re easy to learn when you read them in rhyme.
So just like the alphabet, let’s learn by heart
our 17 SDGs – come on, let’s start!
All the world’s Nations United as one,
aiming to finally get the job done:
defining SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS,
rethinking our actions and everyone’s roles.
So here is rhyme that is easy and fun,
so everyone knows what we need to get done.
You can do your part, now that you know
our planet needs all of us. Ready? Let’s go!
