“FOR THE GOALS TO BE REACHED, EVERYONE NEEDS TO DO
THEIR PART: GOVERNMENTS, THE PRIVATE SECTOR, CIVIL SOCIETY AND PEOPLE LIKE YOU.” - Solitaire Townsend

In 2018 Solitaire Townsend (Co-founder of the change-agency Futerra) developed 'The Good Life Goals to bridge the gap between the Sustainable Development Goals and the sustainable lifestyles movement.
Inspired by this, in 2019 the Flourish Project created its own version of the Goals by mapping the 17 goals against the 7 Aspects of the Flourish Values Model and, in each case, highlighting the huge importance of the goals for shaping the lives and future wellbeing of children.
In 2021 the Flourish Project partnered with Montessori Europe to produce the SDGs Handbook for the Early Years. This aims to show that even the youngest children are important global citizens and powerful change agents for the future.
The SDGS Handbook for Primary and Elementary Schools provides a range of topics that can be adopted by schools to ensure that they are covering all seventeen of the Sustainable Development Goals.
It engages children and young people in asking the big questions about how we can work together to create a more caring and sustainable world.
