The World’s Largest Lesson
This year on September 24th children all around the world will take part in the World’s Largest Lesson for its fifth year.
What are the 17 Global Goals?
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone. The World’s Largest Lesson introduces the Global Goals to children and young people everywhere and unites them in action.
However, you do not need to plan all of this alone. The World’s Largest Lesson website has a series of resources to introduce the Global Goals. These include:
- Decorations for your classroom
- Certificates of participation for students
- Even a free educator training course created by Microsoft!
Their resources library also provides a wide range of materials including: lesson plans, animations, celebrity videos, comic books and more. You can also use the hashtag #worldslargestlesson and other social media to find out what other teachers are doing and to then share your own students’ work.
Be sure to let us know (at firstname.lastname@example.org) of any work you complete for the World’s Largest Lesson for us to share!
