Global Challenge Committee Chosen

Through the guidance of UNICEF, a United Nations programme that defends the rights of children across 190 countries, British School of Guangzhou students will work directly with their communities to raise awareness of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our Global Challenge Committee have been chosen and are raring to go!

  • UNICEF Global Goals Committee
  • UNICEF Global Campus
  • UN Global Challenge Video

One idea they've decided upon is to establish a school garden, which could help a homeless charity and involve everyone at BSG with the UNICEF Global Goals initiative. 

In order to meet their requirements, the students have been given specific roles and responsibilities within the committee:

1. Annual Calendar - Planting what, when, harvest

  • Decide what to plant
  • How long to grow
  • How much to plant
  • Cost of seeds

Aditi Telang, Sitara Bhojwani, Princy Gompa, Preston Zhong

2. Inventory and Purchase List

  • Look at the existing equipment
  • Decide what else needs to be bought
  • Generate a list of equipment with costs and where to purchase from

3. Service Rota in Secondary and Charity Liaision

BSG students will focus on two goals:

The challenge is part of the World’s Largest Lesson, a global initiative aimed at bringing the goals to classrooms across the world through lesson plans, videos, comics and creative content.

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals were adopted by 193 countries in the UN General Assembly in September 2015. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved by 2030. In order to accomplish these goals, the UN has asked governments, private sector, civil society and citizens to participate.

“If the Sustainable Development Goals do not resonate with children and young people around the world in a way that is meaningful and relevant to their own lives and experiences, they will not be achieved. Students are some of the most passionate activists and agents of change on the planet, and it is their passion and determination that will drive all of us towards a more just, equal and sustainable world by 2030,” said UNICEF Agenda 2030 Partnerships Manager Shannon O’Shea.
