In Sri Lanka there is no adequate knowledge and awareness on overall sustainable development goals and related targets among the general public. Although the government organized some events/programmes to raise the awareness, these attempt were not able to reach the community effectively. This situation could be identified as a major obstacle in participatory planning and localizing the SDG targets which make a negative impact on realizing the desired goals.
To address this issue CED conducted 18 training workshops on SDGs and SDG4 for the parents and teachers. These training workshops were organized by CED district coordinators with the assistant of zonal education directors. These programmes were held during the month of August and September. Through 18 district level training programmes CED was able to reach 750 school teachers.
