Find out more about SDG 12 while practicing your French! We have two lessons to get you started. Both are set in the context of the circular economy with a zero-waste approach to consumption. 

If you are a learner of French, select a lesson based on your interest or your level of French. As well as vocabulary and comprehension exercises, you will also find some topics for discussion. Find someone you can practice with and delve into the topic!  

 If you are a teacher, you might be able to adapt the lessons to your needs.
