Let's Transform Our World - Inter-active Tour

On-site guided tour and lecture operations at the Vienna International Centre remain limited as a COVID-19 prevention measure. This tour format is currently not on offer. Other group tour options 

Ending poverty, fighting climate change, equal rights for women and girls - world leaders have committed to reaching 17 ambitious goals to transform our world by 2030. Our inter-active tour 'Let's Transform Our World' puts the Sustainable Development Goals front and centre for school groups visiting the UN in Vienna. Choose this inter-active format if you wish your students to engage with the work of the United Nations and its Vienna-based organizations.

Tour outline

The 90-minute timeframe of this tour allows the tour guide to employ an entertaining mix of show and tell and inter-active games. The guide explains the UN's role in helping reach consensus on global challenges, usually by visiting an actual conference room, and will ask the group to get active in exploring some of the 17 Goals in more detail. Participants will have fun discovering a few of the ways UN organizations in Vienna and around the world are working to help achieve the Goals, and young people will go home with some ideas of how their own actions can help transform their world.

Teaching resources

If you are an educator, view this tour as a basic starting point for an in-depth look at different sustainable development and human rights topics in the classroom. Teachers receive a reference guide to on-line teaching resources and other materials at the end of each tour.
