From the author, Dr Mary Ashun: “The Global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are critical to our development both at home and abroad and as such, educators are key to promulgating its essence in every way possible. As Principal at the Ghana International School, I encourage various activities that are used to highlight the importance of awareness of these goals and I’m pleased to say we are at the forefront of creating awareness when it comes to schools on the African Continent.”
