Promoting Sustainable Development Goals
Ocean Literacy in Sail Training (OLIST) has one key driver - to identify and promote how Sail Training implements the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as part of the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. In particular, SDG 14: Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources.
However, the unique alternative education space that is Sail Training also has the potential to deliver elements of all 17 SDG's. The following pages identify some examples of how the world of Sail Training may achieve delivering the United Nations SDG's.
Please be aware, this is an overview of how Sail Training may be able to achieve and promote SDG’s. Individual operators/ organisations may have different interpretations depending on their own specific business area.
The Sustainable Development Goals are available in full from the United Nations website.
