The British School of Beijing (BSB) Shunyi students will come together with fellow Nord Anglia Education students around the world on 20th November to raise their voice and address some of the most pressing questions facing the planet in a global chain reaction on social media spanning the US, Latin America, Europe, Middle East and Asia.
The call to action by Nord Anglia Education students marks the celebration of World Children’s Day, which is also the anniversary of the adoption of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Together, students will be making their opinions heard to raise awareness and challenge people to take action on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, encouraging us all to play an active role in creating the future we want for our children.
Over 24 hours, Nord Anglia students will set and answer questions about the issues that matter to them, sharing their video responses via Twitter. BSB students will share their response on Monday 20th November – look out for the video at our BSB Facebook , BSB Twitter , Global Campus blog pages.
This will be an empowering day with our students leading the learning at every opportunity.
“The recognition of the rights of young people is a fundamental part of a good school and a healthy society. Here at BSB and as part of Nord Anglia Education we whole-heartedly support UNICEF in its important work and work every day to ensure our students enjoy their rights and champion the rights of other young people around the world” said Mr. Richard Thornhill, Principal of The British School of Beijing (BSB) Shunyi.
This event is part of UNICEF’s World Children’s Day campaign #KidsTakeOver - a day when students take over schools, businesses and government organisations around the world to raise awareness of children’s rights. For one day, Nord Anglia students around the world will take over their schools and our regional and central offices. The day will culminate with 40 Nord Anglia Education students celebrating World Children’s Day with more than 100 New York City students at UN Headquarters with Executive Director of UNICEF, Anthony Lake, UN Secretary General, António Guterres, and various child activists and celebrities.
This event is part of Nord Anglia Education’s work with UNICEF to empower children and raise awareness of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals using the World’s Largest Lesson, a teaching and learning initiative co-led by UNICEF.
