Migration & the Sustainable Development Goals

The resource seeks to put the plight of refugees and the drivers of migration into a wider political context with the SDGs as a tool providing insight and authority. The activities challenge young people to be empathetic to the stark reality and perilous journeys facing refugees and migrants, including giving some insight into what it might be like to have to live that reality and make the tough choices facing their fellow human beings every day.
