The suitcase contains 17 round pages that when properly positioned, create a globe, a three-dimensional book.
One side of each page presents the Goal in full color illustrations (Goal Page) and the other side proposes an activity for the students that is linked to the Goal (Action Page). Each Goals is “conceptually” introduced by a unique verb, which states the central meaning of each Goal, and each verb initiates discussion, which can be guided and enriched with the accompanying material (illustration of each Goal, instruction booklets for the teacher, suggested activities, accompanying items).
The booklets are addressed to the teacher and provide basic guidelines on how the material can be used in the classroom. More specifically, every booklet is structured as follows:
-UNs definition of each SDG is presented
-The verb introducing the Goal is presented
-Other SDGS that each Goal can be linked with are listed, as some issues are raised by more than one SDGs.
-The content of the Goal Page is analyzed and suggestions for matters to be discussed and researched are given.
-The content of the Action Page is analyzed and instructions are given on how to better organize the activity.
-The accompanying to the activity item is presented as well as guidelines on how to use it.
- External links (to be used with QR codes) and alternative activities suggestions are presented.
Each Goal is connected to a special object (rope, seeds, miniature photovoltaic panel, price tags, energy saving light bulb, clothespin, measuring tape etc.), which is either supplementary or necessary for the proposed activities to be carried out. All accompanying items are placed in the transparent box / base of the GAIA 2030 interactive book. The instruction booklet for each Goal contains suggestions on how to use the accompanying items.
On the beginning of the new academic year, the suitcase will travel to all schools the environmental education program "Energy for Life Travels" will visit (Group’s CSR initiative implemented in collaboration with AMKE AGONI GRAMMI GONIMI) and to any schools that will request to host it. Teachers interested in working with the book will be able to submit their request via an online platform ensuring the availability of the suitcase. On the platform, there will also be videos with visualized guidelines for the game.
