A SMART WAY TO START DOING GOOD
(17 Sustainable Development Goals)
Our planet has problems we cannot ignore,
Each person can help, of this I am sure.
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.
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.
Here is a rhyme that’s easy and fun,
so everyone knows what needs to get done.
You can do your part, now that you know.
START DOING GOOD!
Are you ready? Let’s go…
The ABC of SDGs
No one ever should be poor
nor be hungry ever more,
nor be ill without good care:
so life is better everywhere!
Children need to go to school.
Equal treatment is the rule.
Everywhere you go you’d see
clean water and clean energy.
With decent jobs life’s more fun,
so growth is good for everyone.
Infrastructure is the key
to lower inequality.
We must build sustainably
our cities and communities.
Choosing wisely when we buy,
means our planet will not die.
Save the oceans and the seas,
the animals and all the trees.
For the world to live in peace,
let’s all be good partners, please.
