World’s Largest Lesson
On September 25th 2015, 193 world leaders will commit to the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. 17 goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years. End extreme poverty. Fight inequality and injustice. Fix climate change. If every school in the world teaches children about these goals, we will help them become the generation that changed the world.
That’s why the Global Goals Campaign in partnership with UNICEF and a host of children’s heroes such as Serena Williams, MalalaYousafzai, Neymar, DaniAlves, KoloTouré and Nancy Ajram, have got together to create the World’s Largest Lesson. Schools in over 100 countries are taking part and we want you to join them!
All you have to do is teach a lesson about the Global Goals in the week of the 27th September. Spend 30 minutes or an hour introducing students to this new “to-do” list for people and planet in assembly or class. All the resources you need are available in 10 languages at www.globalgoals.org/worldslargestlesson
The World’s Largest lesson is a film written bySir Ken Robinson and animated by Oscar winning Aardman Animation that will challenge students to help fight global inequality, end poverty and protect the planet, using their very own superpowers. It’s introduced by celebrities in different languages to inspire children.
‘Heroes for Change’is a comic book fromleading comic writers and illustrators. It’s beautiful and introduces the goals and sets out the impact they will have as a collective. Use the comic to help inspire children to put on their ‘blue capes’ ad work together to change the world.
The World We Want is a guide to the Global Goals for children and young people that gives you and your students the background information that they need
Lesson plans from our friends across the world. We’ve gathered a group of passionate celebrities and teachers to create excitinglessons plans that range from introducing the new Global Goals as a whole, to ones that focus on education, gender equality, violence and many more.
We are trying to run as many lessons as possible around the world during the week of September 27th. Run a lesson if you can or share this message with someone who might be able to!
Then let us know with Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!
