Student ambassadors heading to New York for UNICEF Summit

07 July 2019

Premium international schools group Nord Anglia Education offers a transformational education to students, which focuses not only on ensuring academic success but also on inspiring students to positively impact their individual communities and the world at large.

As part of Nord Anglia Education’s collaboration with UNICEF, students across the globe have been raising awareness of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through projects at their schools. The SDGs are a collection of 17 goals set by the United Nations regarding social and economic development issues.

Each year, the capstone event with UNICEF is when students from Years 10-12 visit New York for the NAE-UNICEF Student Summit. Three students from The British International School Abu Dhabi will represent the school.

For the HLPF, eight articulate student panelists have been chosen to speak onstage to audiences at this United Nations side event. They will be part of two panels sharing how they are taking steps to make the world a better place through the SDGs. These panelists have been chosen as a joint decision between NAE, UNICEF and the World’s Largest Lesson. At the start of the HLPF event, one Nord Anglia student has been specifically asked to launch a piano donated by Sing for Hope to UNICEF to tie the arts and the global goals together.

Also, during the HLPF, winners from Nord Anglia’s Global Campus Visual Arts competition will be showcased as a part of an Arts Exhibition at the United Nations. This allows our students to promote what NAE is doing to tackle the SDGs and to network with government and UN officials as they admire our students’ artwork.

Last but not least, two NAE students have been asked to present at the ECOSOC Chamber at the United Nations as a part of governments’ voluntary national reviews. This will be held in the iconic General Assembly Hall.

Following the HLPF, a glamorous Gala dinner will be held at The Juilliard School to allow students to celebrate their accomplishments during the week. There will also be awards given out to students for their efforts during the MUN.

We are very proud that three of our Year 12 students, Solenn, Asim and Omar, will represent our school. Last week, the students spent a few hours working with 14 of our Year 4 students on ‘The World’s Largest Lesson’, a series of lessons designed to help younger students to understand the Global Goals and the work of the United Nations.  

We wish Solenn, Asim and Omar well on their travels and we hope that they will bring back a whole host of ideas to keep our school at the forefront of helping to make our world a safer, fairer, cleaner place.
