- SDG Assessment Students conduct an inventory on what their school is already doing on the 17 SDG themes in education and operations. The results can be shared via social media, an interactive website and feed into other projects.
- Poster Campaign Work together to develop posters on the SDGs. One poster per SDG. The posters could highlight facts, explain what each SDG is or how they are relevant for students and staff. Hang the posters in hallways, classrooms or entrance halls. Run a competition in which students can win prizes, have students take a photo of themselves in front of all the 17 posters and share why they find the SDGs important.
- SDG Theme Months Ask students and staff which SDG they find most important. From the results, pick the highest ranked goals and organise an engagement programme over one semester: Each month, there will be a different talk, video screenings, excursions, panel discussion or workshop on one of the SDGs that was identified in the survey.
- Art Exhibition Engage local artists to work together with the students on several afternoons to produce pieces of art, including photographs, paintings or sculptures, that symbolise one of the 17 SDGs. Then, organise a big art exhibition where the art work is shown and where the audience learns more about how the art relates to the SDGs. Make sure to take lots of photos to promote the art work also via social media.

- Research Find a way, through a scientific experiment, paper, or study, in which a developing country could provide affordable and clean energy.
