What are UN SDG’s and why are they so important for Kahoot!?

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are 17 goals adopted by all UN member states representing an urgent call for action to make the world a better place by 2030. Many of the SDGs are reflected in Kahoot!’s strategy and operations as a company, and we believe in following the SDGs as a part of how we work.

The goal number 4 (SGD4) is to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. As a family of learning apps, together with DragonBox and Poio, we want to help people all around the world overcome barriers on the way to literacy and numeracy, as well as contribute to making learning more inclusive.

 

Raising awareness about children’s rights together with UNICEF

We are proud that individuals and organizations use our platform to raise awareness about important topics, such as sustainability, human rights, climate, and more. Last month, on the United Nations day, we started a joint campaign focused on children’s rights.

Child rights and wellbeing are placed front and center in the approach to achieving SDGs. This fall marked a 30-year anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child signed by global leaders.

UNICEF has collaborated with Kahoot! to create kahoots focused on children’s rights to raise awareness both among children themselves and adults, too. These engaging quizzes have been translated into 17 languages (Spanish, French, Russian, Arabic, Hebrew, Korean, Dutch and more) to make content accessible for children all over the world. Play these kahoots in your language together with your students!
