Our students team up with UNICEF to promote Sustainable Development Goals

Through the guidance of UNICEF, a United Nations programme that defends the rights of children across 190 countries, Nord Anglia International School, Dubai, students will work directly with their communities to raise awareness of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) while researching and designing practical solutions to achieve these goals.

 

Nord Anglia International School, Dubai, students will focus on two goals (links below):

 

The challenge is part of the World’s Largest Lesson (Click here for more information), a global initiative aimed at bringing the goals to classrooms across the world through lesson plans, videos, comics and creative content. 

UNICEF has also invited selected students from our school to present their ideas on the SDGs at an event during the United Nations High Level Political Forum (HLPF) on Sustainable Development taking place from 10 to 19 July 2017 at UN Headquarters in New York City. This is a unique opportunity for Nord Anglia International School, Dubai, students to contribute to the discussion and influence policy at the highest level.

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (Click here for more information) were adopted by 193 countries in the UN General Assembly in September 2015. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved by 2030. In order to accomplish these goals, the UN has asked governments, private sector, civil society and citizens to participate.

“If the Sustainable Development Goals do not resonate with children and young people around the world in a way that is meaningful and relevant to their own lives and experiences, they will not be achieved. Students are some of the most passionate activists and agents of change on the planet, and it is their passion and determination that will drive all of us towards a more just, equal and sustainable world by 2030,” said UNICEF (https://www.unicef.org/) Agenda 2030 Partnerships Manager Shannon O’Shea.
