Talakayang Alay sa Bayan (TALAB) is an activity of the Ateneo de Manila University’s Loyola Schools that seeks to engage students and the wider community in a discussion of critical social issues. This school year’s TALAB will tackle the Sustainable Development Goals and other long-term visions of the future. The Sustainable Development Goals articulate 17 goals and 169 targets that all United Nations member countries seek to achieve by the year 2030. These goals and targets include a wide range of social, economic, political, and environmental indicators. The various activities of TALAB for School Year 2017-2018 will explore the various goals and targets included in the SDGs. TALAB SY 2017-2018 will also include activities that will interrogate the SDGs themselves and discuss alternative long-term visions for society.
