Who Cares? Empowering Students to Grow in Equity

The panelists will discuss the projects their students completed as a part of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and how they motivated their students to care about those around them and to spur them toward work on the PBLs. A lively discussion about how students from multiple geographic locations and culturally diverse areas could work together to make a difference is their respective communities. Attendees will walk away with insight into how to help students care about others.
