Next week, world leaders will commit to the Global Goals for Sustainable Development – 17 goals to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and fix climate change in the next three years. As part of this push teachers worldwide are being asked to edcuate their students about the goals, in order to help them become the generation that will change the world.
Project Everyone, who are working to make the Global Goals famous, have created a lesson plan that teachers can use all around the world to get their pupils thinking about how their actions affect the whole planet and what they can do to make the world a better place. Take a look at the video below for a taste of what the lesson involves…
If your school or your class is getting involved with the Global Goals, we’d love to hear what you’re doing. Get your students to write a sentence or record a video explaining what the Global Goals mean to them and send it to us before October 2nd. We’ll be using some of these on Virgin.com to celebrate the Global Goals and some will feature at our Disruptors debate in London on October 2nd.
Download the lesson plan from the Global Goals website and send us your responses via Twitter using the following handles and hashtags: @Virgin @TheGlobalGoals #globalgoals and #Disruptors.
