Today at DCIS, we took part in a global chain reaction in order to create a message to be taken to the UN. We used the power of our collective voices across our family of Nord Anglia Education schools to demonstrate how important the Sustainable Development Goals are.
The chain reaction began on 19th November 2017 in the western time zone schools (Houston, Panama, Mexico and Chicago. These students posted a question via a one minute video on Twitter, which was responded to by students in China and Singapore when they woke up on World Children’s Day.
Each time zone had their own question to respond to, and another question to pose to the schools in the next time zone. Each of the 6 questions covered a different global goal; here at DCIS, our question was ‘How could you include others in your community to work towards the Sustainable Development Goals?’ We responded to this by creating a short video about UN Day, and then asked the final question ‘If you were to start your own country, how could you ensure gender equality from the start?
