Hello Science Fans!

How can science and technology help improve the health and well-being of billions of people?

In this video, we talk about the current status of health and healthcare services in the world — given the existing pandemic. We look at the different indicators that the UN has created to achieve SDG 3: Good health and well-being. We confront the different challenges that we face when it comes to our health, and the different societal systems that need to be put in place for us to be able to be healthy and well. And most importantly, we check how STEM can help achieve this goal.

So, if you want to know how to help achieve good health and well-being, please watch this video!

What are the Sustainable Development Goals and How Do We Achieve Them? | SHE-ensya Lecture Series (Environment)

Hello Science Fans!

What are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? Why do need to achieve them? And how do we achieve them?

In this video, we dive once again in a discussion about how we meet the needs of the present without sacrificing the needs of the future (aka sustainability). Lucky for us, the United Nation’s have developed a set of goals to achieve this. So, we talk about the vision behind the SDGs, we look at how they can be implemented, and we also discuss what will happen if our countries fail to achieve them.

So, if you want to help make the world a better place, please watch (and share) this video!
