On September 25, 193 world leaders will commit to the Global Goals for sustainable development—17 goals to achieve extraordinary things in the next 15 years, including ending extreme poverty and fighting inequality and injustice.
That’s why the Global Goals Campaign has partnered with UNICEF (and a host of children’s heroes such as Serena Williams, Neymar, Dani Alves, Kolo Touré and Nancy Ajram!) to come together to create the World’s Largest Lesson. Schools in more than 100 countries are taking part and we want you to join them!
Parents and teachers: All you have to do is teach a lesson about the Global Goals in the week of September 27. Spend 30 minutes to an hour introducing students to this new “to-do” list in an assembly or class. All the resources you need are available in 10 languages at the World’s Largest Lesson website!
- The World’s Largest Lesson is a film written by Sir Ken Robinson and animated by award-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 from leading comic writers and illustrators. This beautiful book introduces the Global Goals and the collective impact they will have. Use the comic to help inspire children to put on their “blue capes” and 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 you will need!
- Lesson plans from our friends across the world: World’s Largest Lesson has gathered a group of passionate celebrities and teachers to create exciting lessons plans on subjects that range from introducing the new Global Goals as a whole, to focusing on education, gender equality, and more.
