This 'Sustainable Consumption and Production - Overview and Activity Ideas' document contains an overview of the 'Sustainable Consumption and Production' aspect of sustainability, which is one
of the key areas targeted by the United Nations sustainable development goals (SDGs). This document provides a summary of the specific targets and actions set by the United Nations in this area along with a range of key stage specific cross-curricular lesson and activity ideas that teachers could use to focus on sustainability in the classroom. For a number of the lesson ideas, we have provided additional resources to support teaching or to give more in-depth information about an activity.
