In July 2018, 80 students from Nord Anglia Education (NAE) schools around the world met in New York to attend the United Nations High Level Political Forum (HLPF). As part of NAE’s work on the Global Goals, students were learning about the goals and thinking about how we can further promote them in our schools. The students spent the week attending a variety of workshops, participating in a Model United Nations and preparing for the HLPF.
We also had tours of the United Nations and UNICEF, both of which were incredibly informative and inspiring. We learnt about how the United Nations was formed, saw some of the meetings that were taking place and learnt about the work the UN do around the world. We also learnt about the amazing things UNICEF have achieved and how we can work with them to help them achieve their goals.
Our Student Ambassadors from BSB, Deborah and Edward, both had important roles on the trip. Edward was one of four students that made a speech at the HLPF. He spoke about his ideas on the Sustainable Development Goals and what can be done to help achieve them by 2030. Deborah was one of four students that were given the role of Report Writers. They wrote a report about the Sustainable Development Goals and NAE students’ opinions on them (taken from a worldwide NAE survey), plus looking at actions to promote them in the future.
