Global Campus in Primary
20 April 2018
As part of Global Campus this week, we have had the World’s Largest Lesson – an initiative that supports the UN Global Goals, specifically 11 (Sustainable Cites and Communities) and 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production).
Pupils in the primary school discussed how changing habits could really help the planet and achieve these goals. Under the title ‘Every little bit Helps’, children looked at their habits at school and at home and how they could modify or create sustainable habits that would help the environment. We looked at ideas such as turning lights off when not needed, trying to cut down or re-use plastic bags and bottles and watching how much water we waste.
Children are in the process of creating awareness posters for this habit changing and forming campaign. Please talk to your children about the lesson and see what their thoughts are on the subject – how can you help them form good environmentally sound habits?

Below are explanations of what we are trying to achieve:
Here’s a great quote form an 11 year old Sierra Leone child from Freetown:
‘I WILL TALK ABOUT THE GLOBAL GOALS EVERYWHERE I GO AND WITH EVERYONE I MEET”
