Goal 9: Industry, Innovation & Infrastructure
From the UN:
"Investments in infrastructure – transport, irrigation, energy and information and communication technology – are crucial to achieving sustainable development and empowering communities in many countries. It has long been recognized that growth in productivity and incomes, and improvements in health and education outcomes require investment in infrastructure.
Inclusive and sustainable industrial development is the primary source of income generation, allows for rapid and sustained increases in living standards for all people, and provides the technological solutions to environmentally sound industrialization.
Technological progress is the foundation of efforts to achieve environmental objectives, such as increased resource and energy-efficiency. Without technology and innovation, industrialization will not happen, and without industrialization, development will not happen."
iEARN Projects Take Action

Join us as we study unique and important buildings across the globe! We are excited to learn about the remarkable buildings in your country. Participating classes will share photos, information, and personal connections about a significant building in their country.
As groups share information, we hope to create a dialogue with additional questions and comments. We will learn more about the world through our study of these noteworthy structures.
