SDG Toolbox
Resources on SDGs for church-based actors

The SDG Toolbox, available on the Waking the Giant website, provides churches and church-related actors with information and training material on the UN Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. At the moment, the Toolbox includes a general theological introduction to the SDGs and specific modules on SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-Being), SDG 4 (Quality Education), SDG 5 (Gender Equality), SDG 10 (Reduced Inequalities), and SDG 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions). For those modules, there is also a SDG Self-Assessment tool (available both in a web-based version and as PDF questionnaires for download) that enables church-based actors to easily comprehend the link between their ongoing activities and specific Goals, and Targets of the Agenda 2030.
