Many developed countries have prioritized progress of those countries that are still under developed. The SDG’s are to end fear of poverty, hunger, AIDS, and discrimination against women and girls.

This project helped me understand a little more about teamwork and has helped me enhance my knowledge about topics I otherwise would know very little about I have enjoyed my time learning more about sustainability and it various side effect of sorts.

Group reflection

The group was quite easily split into different responsibilities, everyone was asked to do their part. Everyone learnt a little more about each other’s and their talents in specific roles. A lot of us did not know what exactly to do in the project but in due course and with the help of Ms Sadia we were well prepared for the project. Over all we have acquired a lot of skills and information on sustainability development.
