Primary debate UN Goals

  • Global Campus Primary Debate

The Global Campus Debating League has now begun in primary as a weekly ASA for Years 3-6, which now has 25 members!

We spent our first couple of meetings introducing the Global Goals, by learning about the 6.7 billion people in the world. We read the book ‘If the world were a village’ (video version here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrcOdLYBIw0) to help children understand global statistics on population, languages, ages, religions, food, air, water, schooling, money and access to electricity. Children were captivating by this book and often surprised by the statistics, for example, 20% of people live on less than 65p per day and only 34% of people always have enough food to eat. This enabled pupils to identify the key problems in the world, from which we began to think about what is being done about it.

Children were then introduced to the 17 Global Goals written by the United Nations to make the world better by 2030 – by fighting inequality, ending extreme poverty and respecting our planet.  Click here to see details http://www.globalgoals.org/

Over the next few weeks we will learn more about the Global Goals to prepare for debating with other Nord Anglia schools around the world through the Global Campus, including improving our debating skills by working as a team to conduct research and write persuasive arguments. We look forward to another year of successful debating!
