Description: This easy to implement activity provides an effective demonstration of the interconnectedness that characterizes the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. Students representing individual ‘goals’ arrange themselves randomly in a circle and look to connect to other students with goals related to their own by passing a ball of string. After passing the string, the student must articulate what the connection is. The result is a visual web and a tactile representation of integration of all 17 Global Goals. Links to icons for each goal are included in the lesson.
