Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) advocacy
The Captain Centre for Education is a registered Non-Governmental Organization NGO in Ghana West Africa with Department of Social Development Registration #DSD 6484
The Captain Centre operates as a Centre of Excellence in Education and Research, Sustainability and Sustainable Development Advocacy.
The Centre on 21st January, 2016 began the Youth in Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) project (Club @SDGs2030) that seeks to promote awareness of the SDGs through youth engagement and Sports.
This flagship project of the Centre is being implemented in collaboration with the Ghana Education Service (GES) and other developmental partners and seeks to engage Junior High and Senior High school students on diverse platforms on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) also known as the Global Goals which is the United Nations agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and stems from the Millennium Development Goals that ended in 2015.
The project among other objectives seeks to expose the youth to the prevailing social, economic and political challenges facing our world today, guard them to prioritize the Global Goals according to the current challenges they encounter and assist them in formulating project solutions and technology capable of securing a sustainable future.
This is necessary to create a paradigm shift and a new kind of responsible youth leaders for a sustainable future.
