The Thai SDG Micro-Primer, developed by the United Nations in Thailand, UNESCO, and the United Nations System Staff College (UNSSC), offers an innovative approach to learning, particularly targeting the youth.

This bite-sized learning format aims to foster awareness and action on development challenges within Thailand, contributing to the advancement of the SDGs.

The Thai SDG Micro-Primer is available in English and Thai.


The 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are our collective roadmap to prosperity. Why wait for a better tomorrow when we can shape it today? Every effort counts in this global endeavor.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its SDGs embody a promise of a better quality of life for everyone—clean air, decent work, and sustainable cities. However, the progress made is not rapid enough. Immediate and decisive actions are crucial for the well-being of both people and the planet.

When millions unite for a common future, their impact is immense. Engage with the microlearning experience, enhance your understanding, and be part of the change.

  • Enhance awareness about the SDGs and the most pressing issues in Thailand among young people.
  • Deepen young Thais’ understanding of the SDGs.
  • Inspire collective action towards the SDGs.
