Awareness Events are experiences that give kids the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with the Sustainable Development Goals and the Missions of our Partners. We have hosted Awareness Events focused on educating youth about SDGs 1, 6, and 15: No Hunger, Clean Water & Sanitation, and Life on Land in partnership with charity: water, NWA Food Bank / Feed America, Center for Biological Diversity, and the International Dark Sky Association.
