Recently, Mr. Palange’s photography students were given an assignment titled “Sustainable Service Photo Shoot”. They were to photograph for the greater good of the community and use these photos as a powerful tool to raise awareness of current issues. Students photographed a wide range of subject areas from interaction with orphanages to photographing wildlife. They were then asked, as an extended part of their Sustainable Service Photo Shoot, to relate their photographs to one or more of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and create a compelling poster using the photos to spread a message about the particular goal and the issue it addresses.
The Sustainable Development Goals are a set of 17 goals the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) set to be accomplished by the year 2030. These goals aim to tackle global issues such as poverty, climate change, infrastructure and economic development, wildlife, and several more interconnected areas that the UNDP has identified as urgent. ISY has started to incorporate these goals into the school curriculum and students themselves are starting to learn more and speak up about these pressing topics. This approach to service learning will be further developed next year.
Here are the posters made by the students. We hope that you appreciate the effort they have put in and are inspired to think about these issues and take action.
