Building on the fantastic work they’re already undertaking as part of our collaboration with UNICEF, our students worldwide are coming together for 24 hours to raise awareness of the Sustainable Development Goals and children’s rights:
- Students will be taking over our schools and creating a global chain reaction on social media, addressing some of the most pressing questions facing the planet.
- 40 Nord Anglia students will join other New York school students and inspirational young people to take over the United Nations in New York, sharing their opinions and encouraging change.
- Students will also be taking over our central and regional offices, interviewing members of our Executive Committee and presenting to staff on the innovative projects already in action.
An important aspect of World Children’s Day is that we listen to and empower young people. Our students are passionate about making a real difference and I believe that with our support now, our students can have a significant impact on the world for decades to come.
I strongly encourage you all to follow the action live through our UNICEF social hub and show your support on Monday by sharing the posts and saying how you’ll take action to support the Global Goals using #NAEUNICEF and #KidsTakeOverSchools.
Chief Executive Officer of Nord Anglia Education
