What is SDGs Litmus Test?
Thank you for your interest in knowing more about the SDGs Litmus Test. For the first time in Pakistan, Green Box has introduced a localised assessment tool for anyone wishing to showcase and expand their knowledge, skills and mindset about sustainable development priorities and challenges in Pakistan and globally.
In the present world, there is a growing need for students and professionals to possess a basic understanding of the current global and national challenges and their responsibility in resolving them. Here is your chance to prove it.
What to expect on the test?
The test is a mix of multiple choice questions, true/ false statements, analogies and situational analysis. Ranging from global understanding of the concept of sustainable development, UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for Agenda 2030 to national sustainable development priorities and challenges faced by public, private and civil society stakeholders in Pakistan.
How to prepare for the test?
Like any other test, preparation is key. No matter whether you are a student interested in understanding sustainable development better or a professional working with UN SDGs for a few years, we highly recommend you revise concepts and key global and national facts/ figures. As the sustainable development challenges are multitude and complex, we understand no one can be fully prepared for the test but we give you three attempts to ace the test!
You might fail the first attempt but hey, you will have learnt so many new facts and figures to ace the next attempt
