We have painted the SDGs Color Wheel at the wall in our school and starting an eTwinning project called "Sparks" in the #GlobalGoals week with more than 20 schools in over 12 European countries.
Thanks to my fantastic students Miljana, Milica, Teodora and Marta and their Art teacher Marija!
I have recorded a video on the Sir Ken Robinson Flipgrid about teaching SDGs for the #TeachSDGs ambassadors. I couldn't say everything I wanted in 90 seconds, so I've cut it few times and doesn't sound so good, but I said the most important thing - announcing our eTwinning project"Sparks".

For this inspiring global project 250 schools over 64 countries will collaborate on climate change topics over the course of four exciting weeks! Students from across six different continents will conduct research, brainstorm and discuss ideas, present and share their findings about these topics via videos and online presentations. During the final week of the project, all participants will have an opportunity to Skype with each other to establish personal and meaningful connections with their global peers. Together, we hope to instil a greater understanding in our students of the importance of taking action against climate change.
In order to be better global citizens, students need to tackle big questions. Real world problem-solving and innovation skills are vital for being an active participant in the 21st Century.
The goal of this student-centered global project is to provide an opportunity for students from 50+ countries in over six continents to construct their own knowledge about climate change and to create a growth mindset about overcoming and most of all taking action. Students will be encouraged to use their critical-thinking and reasoning skills to build deep knowledge. Let's bring empathy into our classrooms!

In August 2017 I was accepted to be the part of #TeachSDGs Ambassadors Task Force.
What that means?
The Global Goals Educator Task Force launched its #TeachSDGs mission in hopes that other educators would rally around a single vision: a world where this roadmap to a better humanity is introduced and explored in every classroom on Earth.
Our ambassadors are passionate global thinkers from many nations, co-leaders of the #TeachSDGs movement.
