World Largest Lesson brings sustainable goals to life

This year's Sustainable Development Goals and the 'Worlds Largest Lesson'

All Nord Anglia students are empowered to make a difference and to positively impact the world. Through our collaboration with UNICEF, students participate in meaningful activities to effect change in their schools and communities at large. To focus these efforts on specific goals, UNICEF annually challenges Nord Anglia students to raise awareness of the Sustainable Development Goals, which are a collection 17 goals set by the United Nations regarding social and economic development issues.

This year’s Global Challenge

With the 2018/2019 academic year underway, Nord Anglia students across the world are gearing up to take fresh action on the Sustainable Development Goals.

This year, we are focusing our efforts on goals 4 and 16, which are all about inclusive education, peace and justice, and ending violence against children.

Goal 4

Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all

Achieving inclusive and equitable quality education for all will require increasing efforts, especially in sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Asia and for vulnerable populations, including persons with disabilities, indigenous people, refugee children and poor children in rural areas. 

“In some parts of the world, students are going to school every day. It’s their normal life. But in other parts of the world, we are starving for education…it’s like a precious gift. It’s like a diamond…”Malala Yousafzai

Ending violence against children

Statistics show that at least 1 of every 2 of the world's children have experienced some form of violence. Goal 16 has a particularly strong focus on ending the abuse, exploitation, trafficking and all forms of violence against and torture of children. We’re looking forward to how our schools will be raising awareness on this incredibly important topic throughout the year!

The bring the Sustainable Development Goals to life in Nord Anglia Education schools, teachers use additional materials, lesson plans, films, comics and activities from the World’s Largest Lesson, an organisation whose purpose is to reach every child in the world with a lesson about the goals, and to encourage them to know how to act.

So far, World’s Largest Lesson has helped bring lessons into more than 160 countries, with materials published in 10 languages!
